I used to buy a lot while in the Army; easy to put a paperback in a cargo pocket to read while out in the field.
On the E-books thing, I always remember the scene in the Time Machine where Rod Taylor discovers the rotting books in the library and comments about how it explains so much. I thought it would make a great Kindle ad to have a digitized Yvette Mimieux reply, "Oh, your civilization still reads books made from dead trees?"
