Barnes and Noble e-books outsell printed books

On Tuesday, Barnes and Noble reported to Agam Shah how much more popular e-books are over the physical books.  During the fourth quarter,  e-books took a first place to books with three times the sales of the e-book. Massabesic library is changing to a media center this fall.  The digital world is taking a big step and becoming more popular with libraries and book stores.  What does this mean for physical books?  I do not have the answer but I wish for our physical books to still be of use.
