Yungaburra bookseller - a few days ago!

A seller of rare books he was in Yungaburra town
The day will come the seller said
When books will be as gold
Rarities, the hoi polloi will wish they could afford
Yer kindles and yer kobos will have rotted into dust,
electronic circuits gone AWOL, superseded, rust.
But paper ink technology will last beyond their grave
Though most'll just be rich guys' toys - in a fine gated enclave.

Not like gold yet, and however my students sometimes say they're expensive, while they spend fortunes on their phones and i-phones...
You're right, this reminds me of my fb note.
