Your suggestions that "I want to live in the past", "be bound to my fragile, vulnerable possessions", that I'm "sadly mistaken" or that it is "my fault" if I can't read old floppies anymore are downright insulting, condescending, and have no place in a civilised conversation of any sort.
Just so you know Clairvaux, I share your reaction--I suppose only the mods can tell us why this person gets away with these sorts of posts here.

I salute you for your love of books, and envy your collection. We recently acquired a 2nd home which not only has a library, but the now-elderly folks who had lived there asked us if they could leave the books, and needless to say we were more than thrilled. I have a few Kindles and there's no comparison to the joy/experience of "real" whether hardcover or paperback.

We also are fanatics about scanning and archiving personal documents, and indeed I have every piece of paper we have ever touched on my smartphone as a result. Impressed a friend of mine once at lunch by calling-up an old W-2 in just seconds, from 1970. In the U.S. we do need to keep hardcopy of tax papers for at least 5 years, and home purchase docs "forever", but apart from these we save nothing of paper files whatsoever.
