King skipping E-book on new novel

Looks like there won't be an eBook version of Joyland according to Vulture.

Stephen King, e-book champion and veteran of roughly every major publishing format available, is opting to keep his new horror novel Joyland strictly as a paper book. "I have no plans for a digital version," King says. "Maybe at some point, but in the meantime, let people stir their sticks and go to an actual bookstore rather than a digital one." Does King count Amazon as an "actual bookstore," though? Because Joyland is available for pre-order there. Also: What does "stir their sticks" mean?
