By keeping your book only in digital format, you limit yourself considerably from the largest number of readers. There are literally hundreds of thousands of readers if not millions out there who will never even give your book a glance if you have it in digital format only. Why would you want to do that?
These stats are right on. I know many readers who devour books but only in print. They range from ages 70 down to 19. Yes, even some of the younger crowds don’t do digital books. They like the feel of the pages between their hands. Why deprive them of that and yourself of additional sales.
And by only publishing in print, you are excluding the fastest growing readership. Ereader usage is increasing every year especially as more and more devices have access to digital media. Many people who like digital books expect to find books in that format even if they begin in print. To not find a digital version is a big turn off for those readers.
