Bundling the e-book with the paper book would then have to account for that effort in the pricing somehow.
On the other hand, the effort to make both formats has already been made. Offering both as a bundle may get you more profits as people that would otherwise only buy one format (paper or ebook) will pay the extra to get both. On the other hand, of course, you'll get less profit from people that would have bought both separately.
