Why is the Kindle edition of this book more expensive than the hard cover???? Makes no sense. I may have to go back to just buying books if this is the way it is going to be. I was going to upgrade my Kindle but under these circumstances I would not buy another one. Some books are cheaper but it seems to be going more & more the other way.

I Agree! I was surprised to see Jodi Picoult's "Lone Wolf" at $14.99 when I could get it in hard bound for that at Costco. I feel they should charge no more than $9.99 for any e-books since it is being sent directly to the reader.

Please remember that Amazon does not set the price for Kindle editions for all books. Some publishers have followed what's known as the "agency model" (thanks to the folks who brought you the iPod) which allows them to set their own prices. Whenever I find a Kindle edition that I feel is is priced too high, I go to the publisher's website to look for a feedback option. I then send them the message that I will not buy the book until they drop the price. If enough people would do that, perhaps the publishers would take a second look at their price structure for Kindle editions.

I fully agree with you Lady Galaxy.

Chris, I bought mine at Costco as well. Why purchase from Kindle at that rate.

I just went to purchase another book only to find that the Kindle edition was nearly $20. I got the hard cover for only $10.97. I would like to know how the publishers can justify that.

The same thing happened with Sing You Home last year. It eventually came down in price, you just have to wait it out.

The price just came down to $12.99...feel bad for the people who paid $14.99 not too long ago.

If you want to read a book fast, then getting it on your phone or Kindle cannot be beat. Since I don't hold onto books these days unless they are very special, having them digitally saves me physical space and protects the environment. I don't like it when publishers charge more for the digital version, but I don't think it's crazy.
