Must be rather more than 10 years I would think...
I'd go one further. I think games/interactive experiences have the ability to eradicate leisure reading within fifty years. We'll have 3D without glasses within 10 years (according to recent reports), how much longer until we have full immersion experiences? Why read a book when you can live the story? Book reading is going to look very quaint in the future
