My wife and I have taken the position that we will purchase no Kindle edition for more than $9.99 as we calculated the break point in the Kindle price was a purchase of 30 titles using the $9.99 in relation to the "normal" Amazon hardback price. Since we now have two Kindles we need to purchase 60 titles. If you really want read a new book that is more than $9.99 we recommend purchasing a hardcopy and then having it to share with others or sell on e-Bay.
I'm also very disappointed that the text-to-speech has been disabled for this book. That is one of the benefits of being able to continue to 'read' when I get in my vehicle, and why my Kindle is always with me. Now instead of purchasing this book, I just got in the queue at the library.
I assumed that text-to-speech would be disabled here, since they're selling an audio version for something like $22. But my question is this: is there a place on the Amazon Product page to show if text-to-speech works for any given title?
