Yes people definitely favor books available as ebooks. The problem with that policy is that it in turn favors books old enough to be in the public domain or recent enough so that release as an ebook generally occurs simultaneously with the paper book release. That makes any time period from about 1930 to 2000 problematic. That's a lot of great literary works no matter what the category.

I know that you do not mean this to the logical end, but taken at that each person would nominate their own choice or choices and not second (or third, fourth, fifth) the choices of anyone else. That would make a requirement for two nominations too much.
