Would you agree that paper books refer to endangered species and will disappear earlier or later under pressure of the internet?

Thank you aethelthryth! You answer is, like always, very substantial! I never thought of scrolls which still DO excist and did not disappear yet. More than that in Asia in some countries they are used pretty widely. Your point of view gives hope!
I would rather treat e-books as a substitute to papers ones. But the question was much more about internet and finding information in internet instead of books. Book tend (only to my opinion) not to be any more an initial sourse of information.
You are right if we talk about the book as a collectable thing on a glossy paper. But as a source of knowledge I think they are doomed. Look how many of your kids bring e-books to school instead of paper ones?
