Just watch your eyes with those needles.

What book?

Anti-trust means two or more parties can not conspire to set prices. It doesn't mean that one party must set low prices. The publisher can set any price they like.

Have you checked the price of yarn?

What, there's not one other e-book in the whole world that you'd like to read?

You mean yarn like I'm using for a shawl (that I'm knitting while I read my Kindle)? The yarn that's 100% bison down, a mere $80 per skein?

Yes, the good stuff. I didn't know that it runs that high but am not too surprised.
I don't knit or crochet but have seen a bit of the good yarns. I also know the price of good quilting fabric is much more than people imagine.

I've not heard of bison down. That's interesting.

Wait till it's an Old Allon book then...

I told people that were so happy about that the suit was going to happen that they were not necessarily going to get the lower prices that they thought they were entitled to.

Just because they can't conspire with each other on the pricing, doesn't mean that they have to lower their prices.

I think it could have interesting turn where you are going to find such high prices - not only were they making prices higher than people were used to, but when they were conspiring, they also kept the prices within reason of each other. Just my thoughts.

Holy cow.
And that's why I crochet mostly with good ole Red Heart acrylic.
I'll bet it feels nice though.

It's sort of like knitting with whipped cream. It is so light, but very, very warm. It's undyed, so it's a rich chocolate brown, and I'm adding bright turquoise beads.....

Don't buy books you think are too expensive. Problem solved.

What did you do in your pre-Kindle days?

Knitting is loads of fun. Pro tip: Don't buy yarn and needles you think are too expensive.

I'm assuming he means this:

The Heist: A Novel (Gabriel Allon Book 14)

The Kindle edition is $17.99.

Of course, the only other edition for sale is the hardcover, which goes for $20.51.

So the Kindle edition is cheaper, but the OP is STILL going to complain about the price.

Cassie Anne says:
Well, the hard cover is $20, so $17.99 (if you *must* read it on release day) isn't that bad.

Just wait a month or so - chances are the ebook price will fall. Or wait until the paperback is released.

The book isn't even out yet. It is scheduled for July.

Yay!!!!

The French win on both the books price-wise - the one I linked is almost 5,000 USD cheaper and that Gabriel Allon book is 10.96 USD for me!!!!

is that enough exclamation points or do I need to add a few more?

A. Dietz says:
It's also not available until July 15, 2014, so that's a pre-order price that will probably come down.

Use them all - you can get a fresh supply over the weekend.

Good point. The price once it's released is almost always lower than the pre-order price.

"And that's why I crochet mostly with good ole Red Heart acrylic."

don't want to knit exciting underwear using acrylic. Causes rashes... ;)

Sounds heavenly - I want some.

I have yarn envy.
