Kindle Edition - $17.56
Hardcover - $15.11
Come on how can it be? How can digital Version be more expensive than Kindle Edition? It's a little (much too much) unfair... Sorry to say that but I think that I'm going to buy Hardcover.

I was really interested in reading this series after seeing the movie, and hearing the many positive reviews. I got a Kindle last year, and I've completely switched over to digital media. So, I was disappointed to see the cost of these books on Kindle. The mass market paperback is < $5 and the Kindle edition is >$10. That makes no sense. Other publishers are offering Kindle editions at a discount, because there is no variable cost associated with the production of a Kindle edition. So, I guess I will either borrow these books from the local library or wait until the Kindle edition is cheaper. I would like to support talented authors, but I'm not really interested in fattening the wallets of the publishing industry.

lol i am not even going to buy this. The kindle edition is more expensive than the paperback.... are you bloody serious. Get over yourself, there is no way this book is worth that much, it's nowhere as good as most dragon books out there such as Mccaffery and its more expensive. Bah you need to get your ducks in a row.
