If you look at the reasons she has given for this in the past, it's pretty clear that she doesn't understand technology and is afraid of it. The word "Luddite" has been used, and is probably accurate in her case.
Given that, and the fact that she has tons of money she's already made off of this franchise, probably means that she doesn't care if she's losing any money by not selling eBooks. I don't expect her stance to change any time soon.
