Books have a much longer history of use, books are reliable and convenient. Some people cannot read from the screen at all, only paper books.

DVDs, like tapes, are not reliable in work, they were released much less, in relation to books, they do not have the romance, like vinyl. DVD requires special equipment that is difficult to obtain or repair. DVDs disappeared relatively recently, and did not have time to acquire collectible value.
