that sums up my position, too - I tend to prefer ebooks for practicality, as these days I am travelling quite a bit, and I am afraid that an ordered pbook will get to me after I've left, but in general I do not mind pbooks. In fact, several of my nominations have been pbooks, as I guess like most of us I first think of the book and check availability later.

I'd rather we did not veto any format just because of the format, after all this is a book club, so I'd be happy if we prioritised the content, rather than the vehicle - not to mention that being scattered in different countries, what is an ebook in one place may not be available elsewhere, as we know.
