I don't have consistent electricity so I say no. I like ebooks but when I have something I like to have tangible copies because I understand the simple fragility of data. Technically you don't have anything except permission to read a book when it's an ebook. A simple glitch or broken electronic device can take that in a moment.
I like hardcopies of books, CDs, and video game disks. I have them unless someone comes into my house and destroys them.

Books may diminish, but I don't think they'll ever be a time where books are fully replaced.
A little less than imaginary~
