Yay to all that.
Non-availability is a killer. I got to number 14 of Bernard Cornwell Sharpe books, only to discover that 15-23 weren't in ebook format, number 24 was. Where's the sense? The temptation to just get the rest in pirate copies is almost irresistable.
One thing I'd add is that the format should be readable and searchable from the desktop. I want to be able to search my whole library for a reference on the machine where I work. Limiting it to a search on the reader, as with the Kindle, doesn't cut it.
