I don't understand why Amazon would charge more for the kindle version than for the paperback version. I am an excited new kindle owner, but I am leery of paying $9 for a digital copy of this book when the paperback is $7. The marginal cost to Amazon to transmit a kindle book is basically zero, and I guess I falsely assumed that the digital books would be considerably less.
The kindle version is $8.99 and the paperback is $6.99. Why? This is getting ridiculous. I'm just going to go down to the bookstore. I haven't touched my kindle in weeks and I used to love it and take it everywhere, but the more I see the digital books being priced over the paperback is frustrating.
There is no reason that a digitally transmitted book, without the cost of paper production, artwork, shipping weight, etc. should ever cost more than the physical book. It's greed on the the part of the publishers and Amazon, pure and simple.
