I like this, but I’m not sure how likely it really is, even if most books are digital one day. Despite wide adoption of e-mail I rarely hear people use just “mail” to mean “e-mail.” I do hear explicit “physical mail” or (more rarely) “p-mail” though. So maybe we’ll get to the point that just saying “book” will evoke “e-book or p-book?” (Before
the Singularity, I mean.)
