In some cases yes. I still like printed books. It's nice having a readable book that expects to outlast my gizmos- I expect real books to cost more and don't mind it if it's a title I really want to keep forever. That having been said, the physical books are fewer and farther between.
I've bought a few books for my son, and the anticipation of them arriving in the mail just for him was nice.
