The future has already happened in books, thanks to That's where I go when looking for selection.

I either buy physical books at costco (when looking for instant gratification), on amazon (when looking for reviews or I need the online features), or the airport (when I have no other options).

Now that "open source" content is happening, book publishing is going to be more and more fragmented, and this is something to watch out for. Randy Pausch's "last lecture" phenomenon might be the future of printed books, where a unique event or interesting lecture on YouTube leads to a book.
