What's your point?

I am willing to pay MORE to NOT have a paper book ever, EVER again.

So? If you don't like the price, don't buy it. It doesn't matter to me what the paperback price is, because I will never read a paperback again.

And just how is that a "rip off"? I don't understand.

Why should it be cheaper? You are paying for the story. Convience is always more anyway. Go to your local warehouse store then go to a 7-11 and see of the prices are the same.

If you don't like the price of ebooks get the paper books.

12 oz of Coke at the convenience store costs more per oz than a 2-liter at the WalMartz. The horror.

All caps and exclamation marks are saved for when the ebook is more than the paperback. Still worth it in my opinion.

Darn, I knew I got something wrong....
(Yes, I knew which was the penny less.)

I agree --- the paperback is a ripoff. In my opinion, ebooks are worth MORE than paper books.

Really? You are complaining over a penny? Geez, now I've heard everything!

In reply to an earlier post on May 13, 2014 1:23:07 PM PDT
Maybe the OP was saying that the paper back is a rip off because it costs more than the ebook?

DIET Pepsi. REGULAR Coke. I vote Independent.

But I don't have to pay any shipping and handling on that Kindle edition of the book, so it's still going to cost me less to buy the e-book. Yay!

Ah, another special snowflake who thinks that what he wants should control the world. Maybe you should use the penny to buy a clue.

No shipping, no dust, no weight, no space, no moving...

Yeah, that is a rip off. The Kindle editions are worth more, I don't know how they get away with charging more for the paperback.
