When Kindle first came out, the average price of mass-market paperbacks was $7.99. Now it is $9.99.

So - of course, the Kindle book prices have risen as well.

The price is whatever the market will bear.

Amazon still deserves some markup, storing the information still costs, and the authors and editors still need to be paid.

I think since the publisher is not having to pay bookstores their markup and pay the printer the price should be lower. When Kindle first came out the books did not exceed 9.99 and now have really jumped.

An option is rediscovering the classics - free or low-priced - or borrowing library e-books.

Talk to your government about that situation.

Not much Amazon can do.

Philippa Gregory kindle books cost $27 in Australia but £8 in UK. Nowhere near parity.

Just about all kindle books cost more than paperback (new)

Have fun, Daniella. I'm suspect you'll be happier. I know I will.

Good-bye.

Do what makes sense to you. No one here cares if you buy new books, used books or ebooks.

And where have you been for the last 2.5 years? Except for the recent price drops from HarperCollins, prices haven't changed much in 2.5 years.

Ok.

No need to wait, Daniela. You should ALWAYS choose a used book if you think it's the best alternative available.

You do what you have to. Seriously tho everything costs more and I'm not paying more for my favorite authors than I did 3 years ago.

I have actually found the price to be dropping on many books on my wishlist that had been Harper Collins.

Food prices are going to be spinning out of control soon, too, because of the drought. Will you go back to used food then?

You had to tell us 3 times?

Reported. Enjoy your used books.
