Books aren't going anywhere. And there will always be DVDs to buy. As another poster said, you can buy a TV program's entire run on the cheap.
In the second-hand circuit they will be, yes. But nowadays at least half of all music, movies, and books are consumed on-line or electronically. My place of employment got slammed with at least 1,000 combined DVDs, Blu Rays, and VHS donated last weekend.

I don't run FireFox on my phone, nor do I use my laptop to play music. This was a spur of the moment thing because I was looking for the songs off of a 4-LP Christmas album my parents used to play while we were putting the tree up. They still have it, but at this time I have no way to convert vinyl to MP3. I found 38 of the 51 tracks on YouTube, and was able to convert 34 of them. Better than nothing. I've added close to 100 tracks to my phone, all stuff that was played in my house when I was growing up.

Me too! I have 'growing up' playlists, high school graduation, college, etc. Plus the physical media to back them up!

I've had a LOT of luck with YouTube, tracking down both music my parents own that we played frequently, and also the "kiddie" music they bought for my brothers and me. My first exposure to Johnny Cash was a promo album he did for Victoria Station restaurants that my brother owned. I was able to track down the info about it, track list AND the songs themselves. And the artwork on Google Images.

Whatever I can't download gets put in a playlist, so when I want to hear a certain song, I still can.

We buy DVD's still. You can get them pretty cheap and I have a DVD player in my vehicle so when we go somewhere it keeps the kids entertained!

I buy all those things; in fact, I still use a camera and have my photos printed. I'm not into digital anything.
