i hope not

can you return a real book to the store after buying then reading it?

you return books to libraries not to sellers

that said, amazon may eat the cost and let you do it anyway

You can, but I don't think that's very ethical of you and takes advantage of Amazon's very liberal return policy. If everyone starts returning books simply because they didn't like the book, Amazon will be forced to take B&N's approach and not permit the return of any ebook for any reason. Did you have much look returning paperbooks that you didn't like?

If you bought it within the past 7 days, you can return it. You should understand that the ability to do that is intended for a book you might have bought by accident. If you read books and return them just because you didn't like them, Amazon can and has removed the ability to return books from your account.

You need to make use of the samples, so you can determine whether you want a book before you purchase it.

You can return Kindle books within 7 days by going to the Manage Your Kindle page on http://amazon.com, click on "actions" next to the book, and click on return for refund. You should really only do this for books that have formatting problems or that you ordered by accident, not for books you don't like. If you're not sure about a book, download a sample first. People have been discovering recently that if they've returned too many books they are blocked from using that feature.

Would you try to return a book to a brick-and-mortar bookstore, just because you didn't like the book?

Dangerous question. Some people would answer "yes" and look at you as if you were crazy to suggest that such a thing represents... sub-optimal decision making.

You call it "sub-optimal decision making," I call it "fraud."

Toe-may-toe, Toe-mah-toe.

some people have no ethics

ever see them also bring in their own cups to mcds for free drinks?

Or dig popcorn containers out of the trash at the movie theater, in order to get a free refill.

Ick.

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 12, 2013 11:29:21 AM PDT
our theatres dont do free refills
but that would be an example if they did

better to pass it on to another incoming customer for a refill
then repeat for the entire days showings

Why didn't you like it? If the formatting was bad, you couldn't read it on your kindle, or the grammar and spelling were atrocious then yes, return it along with an explanation of why. If it just didn't grab your attention then mark it up to not buying that author again and live with having bought it. If you want to return books after reading them, like them or not, use the library.

I once heard a worker at a brick-and-mortar store recommend this to customers.

I agree with you, however, I have had samples look fine on the cloud and still have issues on the actual e-reader, so I would suggest don't just read the sample online but actually down load it onto the e reader.

stores dotn take books back unless defective

and people like that are one reason the b&m stores are dying off

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 12, 2013 11:37:34 AM PDT

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 12, 2013 11:39:17 AM PDT
You may not want to point fingers as far as grammar goes.

Books A Million will take books back if they look like new.

Yes, but formatting can change if that is the issue

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 12, 2013 11:41:15 AM PDT
formattign should not
but might

but it should be really bad to return a book
it is the grammar and other errors that would bother me

sometimes a return is necessary because there is no way to utilize the book purchased. i.e. - I bought a bible and there is no index so there no way to navigate to the needed chapter. You have to just thumb through the book and hope you find the chapter and verse. What a pain!

hopefully you posted a review so other people will know not to purchase it?
