This is true and I do the same thing when searching for a very specific piece of information. I think the usefulness depends on what we are looking for.

When learning how to do something I usually do not have a problem finding the section in a book I pull from my shelf. The index in most books is pretty good. And when learning, I don't usually want just one piece, I want to read or review the whole section.

Having both a searchable digital and readable paper copy of a book would seem ideal.
