Hi,

I was wondering where I might find course literature for university courses on the Kindle shop? Is there a list somewhere? Like psychology, computer science, business administration. Conflict resolution. Any tips for categories?

You can browse by category, but if the category you want isn't listed, there isn't much you can do. You'd probably be better off searching by the title of the book(s) you are interested in.

I'd like to buy bunches or lists of books. Your tip is pretty much where I am. I guess it's where everyone is, perhaps. Isn't there book clubs on this thing? You can sort of find interesting books by the "other people bought" thing.

Here's Amazon's link to their textbook sales and rental program. It's still in it's infancy and selections are limited: http://www.amazon.com/Kindle-Textbooks/b/ref=amb_link_355831402_47?ie=UTF8&node=2223210011&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=left-1&pf_rd_r=0DYAET7G72SD05SN93DQ&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1449209742&pf_rd_i=1286228011

Do you think the publisher and author made all their money by selling just ONE book?
Do you think there are absolutely no costs involved in distributing ebooks?

Just Peachy says:
How did you pay for that?

Again, do you think they recouped all their costs with the sell of the first copy?

Gee, I didn't know you paid for all the servers and computer equipment it takes to distribute ebooks on the internet for Amazon.

You must be really smart! Have you considered writing a textbook?

It doesn't matter to me how many copies they sell. They can set the price at any level they want. The publisher and Amazon are in business to make money.

Why do you think you should get books for free?

It doesn't matter how much it costs to produce. The rights holder, not you, gets to decide what it will cost. You get to decide if you'll pay it or not.

In what world? How can hardware and software pay for itself? They don't have trust funds or rich parents.

However long it took you to write that post, remember, you'll never get that time back.

Books are "real stuff".
Do you work for free? Someone wrote those books and deserve to be paid for their time.

At least in the US, the government does not decide what price a writer can charge for his book. I'm not sure what virtue has to do with anything, but it doesn't govern book prices, either.

Okay, that's your choice.

Here in the USA, the government does not set prices for luxury items such as books.

Evidently.
