When you read a book, how often do you change the contents?  If you are 
publishing something, the content is generally fixed.  PDF is quite 
useful for that.  There are some situations, where the structure must 
also be retained, where epub is not suitable.  I have read some 
technical books in epub that left me wondering where something was.  The 
same book in PDF is laid out exactly as the paper version would be.
