Books I Would Buy If They Weren't So Expensive

A Listmania! list by K. LoCurto
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "This is a list of books that I was about to buy, but as I looked for the "Buy with 1 Click" button I noticed they were more than $9.99. I was one of the first Kindle owners. I believe $9.99 is a fair price for an ebook. Lately I've even seen ebooks that cost more than paper books. It is not right. I am not making any more money now than I was a few years ago when I bought my Kindle, why should the Publishers be making more money? I will return to using the library before I will pay more than $9.99 for these books."
