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.
Harry - I do take your point, and as I said above, it's in part a subjective issue, so what you and I see in the ebook market may naturally differ.

I suppose my issue is that I maybe haven't hit a magic number of ebooks in which I am genuinely interested thus far. Some of the market is frustrating, though...like the Michael Marshall Smith example I cited above - parts of a trilogy are not available. I would honestly rather they didn't release them at all than do that!

I guess I need to take another look at the market and see if there's enough there for me. At the moment, I'm genuinely unsure as to whether there is or isn't.
