There's cash and I don't ever see it going away to be honest. Post it notes (not necessarily the brand but small scraps of paper for notes) will be around forever. Receipts will likely be printed on paper for the rest of our life times.
I did do a big thesis in one of my classes in college though about the book becoming extinct as we know it because of ebooks. After surveying A LOT of people, there's just so many people that want the feel of a real book in their hands. I do agree that in a lot of ways, paper won't be in use. I wouldn't be surprised that if in our lifetime, nobody is really printing books on paper anymore. However, paper in general will surely be around for at least the next 50 years in some capacity.
I would bet a huge amount that you are wrong in your prediction with books.
