It can be cheaper, especially in these days of agency, but I still buy them all as e-books just for the convenience.

That said, 100% of the people I know with e-readers got them in the last few months (myself included) so, while admittedly completely anecdotal, I don't have the sense that demand is peaking. Quite the opposite, I see demand piquing.

Though I do see consolidation occuring, with the big four (Kindle, Kobo, Nook, and Sony, in no particular order) consolidating their hold on device sales.
