If digital photography could exterminate film photography, why are printed books not extinct?


Film cameras, film rolls and the practice of shooting still photographs on film is a thing of the past. This is because it could not resist the onslaught of digital photography (maybe for good reasons!). By the same parallel, books ought to have been extinct by now, Since we have good internet penetration and e-books on sale, why is it that printed books are still selling? Why are printed books not extinct?

    Film will not go extinct but will play a reduced role in virtually all parts of photography as audio and video tape has. Electronics has changed many things but not eliminated any. Film will remain though harder to find and more expensive.
