I don't think they will. I think there are still too many people out there that enjoy feeling the weight of an actual book in their hand. I'm one of those people though I do have a Kindle and love it for the ability it represents I could never stand the thought of not having print books around. Then again... think of all the trees it could save though a lot of books now are printed on recycled paper I'm sure there are still trees being cut down for the sake of print, though after all these years of print I'm not sure I could see it being gone completely.. it would be odd.
Borders crashed and burned (a real shame) because they refused to adapt to the changes. Epublishing is evolving at light speed. Will people continue to pay the same price for an ebook that they paid for the paperback? I think not. Ebooks are pure profit. In time the big publishers will change-- or will they just jack up the price of print books? We're witnessing evolution!
I think you have a valid point there. That article makes sense too. E-publishing has been on a rise and I have noticed that reviewing, I get more e-books than print. Still if it does come down to print going out I'll be a little saddened by it. I just can't help but love those print books!
