All of a sudden books that were $6.99 are now $10.34 for my kindle. On the kobo they are hovering around the $7.99 range. Why the big price change? Do I buy a kobo now, since I read over 200 books a year this is a lot of money. Anyone else notice a big increase in price. Ebook version is now more expensive than paperback. Dang

Amazon does not control the prices form the 6 big publishers. If it says Price Set by Publisher Amazon has no control.

It is not uncommon for a book or anything to cost more in a different country.

I am noticing the same thing, with prices on several books now being substantially more in Canada. What is worse is that the same books are less on ITunes. If the prices are being set by the publisher, why the difference between Amazon and ITunes. Shouldn't the prices be the same?
