My reasons:

1) Lack of physical space
2) Creative Commons, Public Domain and indie titles I could only get for free or at much lower prices if obtained as eBooks; some I just couldn't find locally (no book store chains in Puerto Rico right now, since Borders closed)
4) Many books and other types of publications that I wanted which only exist in digital formats; I can bundle Web comics as comic book archives or as epubs (Calibre!) and take them with me; I can create eBooks of Wikipedia articles for research or whatever other reasons, and keep reading while I am away from the computer; and so on...
6) The ability to carry as many books and comics as I please with me at any time. I love to carry books and notebooks with me everywhere; my favorite companions!
5) Ecological awareness (I really do care about this matter, and I believe we all should)
