Books which aren't available in eBook format I continue to buy as paper books.

The range of titles available as eBooks is rapidly increasing - there are hugely more now than there were a couple of years ago, for example.
Oh heck yes, totally agree with you there, even tho that new e-books being released is still slow and just a trickle compared to the p-book releases, there is still enough e-books available to motivate the buying of an e-reading device, at least as far as I am concerned. Sure, I might not be able to get the latest book by <AUTHOR>, but I can usually pick up books I really want to read anyway.
