So what happened to the other discussion on this subject? I was interested in knowing what others thought about Doubleday's price on Brown's new book. I'm a huge Dan Brown fan. I've read all of his books. But $14.99 for a Kindle book is outrageous, in my opinion. What do you think about it?

15 bucks for several hours of entertainment and an escape from reality is a good value to me.

Agreed. They dont have the expense of material and logistics...the Kindle price should be less expensive.

I refuse to buy an e-book that costs more than a paperback.

At our local Barnes & Noble, his hard-cover books usually go for $30-35 + tax, not sure about softcover. $15 is a helluva deal to me.

Also: Travis, the kindle version is $14.99. The softcover's ~$17.50. Guess you're buying the kindle version after all, eh?

Quite the conundrum. Amazon discounts the hard copy, which probably cost a few sheckles to print, then the Kindle is a download and only a few bucks cheaper, and therefore seems almost obscene. Wish I was Dan Brown or his publisher getting the royalties I'm sure one or the other is demanding from Amazon.

As a final thought, it was what kept me from buying it if that is a "tell."

It seems that many discussions about high Kindle prices for selected authors have vanished into thin air. The discussions on King's Joyland also just seem to vanish. I've had a Kindle for a few years now and I'm also a Prime member and I do not like some of the things happening with the "big" name authors, as if there books could not be discussed when it comes to price.

I'm wondering this as well. I thought the end result of the lawsuit settled with the justice dept. was that there could be no retail price maintenance on the part of publishers. How, legally, can the publisher dictate this (as amazon claims) given that settlement?

Probably Amazon & the bookshops have a deal to sell hardbacks first... I will definitely not be buying the Kindle version at this price... Suanne

Inferno, by Dan brown selling at for US 2.00 only. Exactly Kindle edition.

The e-book is more expensive than a hardcover? With e-book prices rising, the Kindle was a waste of money. I find I buy more regular books because of the price.
