While I guess I appreciate that my library system supports ebook loans via Overdrive/Libby and Hoopla, I went to look up a book of which I had just read a review. The ebook version is available via Overdrive, but the estimated wait-time is fifteen weeks.

Meanwhile, the print version has 88 of 140 copies available in the system, one of which is the copy at my local library branch.

If I were not already strongly partial to reading the physical paper versions of books, the artificial scarcity of ebooks would definitely put me over the edge.
