Maybe eventually. Maybe not even then.

Possibly after we have durable paper-quality displays for pennies, an eternal storage medium (not 8" floppies, then 5 1/4", then 3", the ZIP, then CD, then DVD, then Blu-Ray,...), and the format/DRM wars are mostly settled. In my lifetime? Seems dubious.

Keep in mind how long paper books have been around versus ANY digital medium. And how fragile most digital storage is compared to paper. Yeah, paper burns or floods but digital media hasn't proven to be especially robust, just easily copied.
