This paper explains how printed books represent far more than mere information or `texts' for those who read them. The availability of a great variety of materials from the Internet does not mean, automatically, that the printed book will become obsolete. Apart from practical considerations mentioned in this paper, much of the ongoing demand for books from the conventional publishing industry can be more cultural than economic.
