Regardless of what these pamphlets say, books are on their way out. The "joy of holding a story in your hands" has not proven reason enough to destroy the environment that trillions of animals call home. Paper is not nearly as effective in storing data as hard drives are, so it serves to reason that they would slowly be replaced until they inevitably fall completely out of production. While this is a very saddening thought to many who grew up reading books, this is just the way progress works. Such as the car replaces the horse, the computer will replace the book.
