"...print books (hereafter referred to as pbooks when it is important to distinguish them from electronic books, or ebooks)."

No need for a new word!  "A book" (analogue book) is a book is a book, as it were.  As in "would you like a book or an ebook?"  It's the format against which the new forms must be distinguished (hence "ebook" and whatever comes next), not the other way around.
