Price too expensive - amazon / kindle needs to review prices,
This review is from: Fifty Shades Trilogy Bundle: Fifty Shades of Grey; Fifty Shades Darker; Fifty Shades Freed (Vintage) (Kindle Edition)I agree with other critic. As much as I want to own this Trilogy, they've set the Kindle edition price far too high.

Random House Digital, Inc. is responsible for the high price, not Amazon. Place the blame for the ridiculously high price where it belongs: the publisher.

If the publisher is responsible for the high costs of the Kindle version, then they definately should be given our two cents worth too. I intend to write them. I love my Kindle and enjoy reading my books from it, but if the cost of these highly rated books keep being so lofty, I will instead go back to paperback or skip purchasing them at all.

I would like to know why the trilogy is cheaper in Canada with the Kobo

Price too expensive - amazon please let the publisher know. I brought my Kindle to capitalize on cost effectiveness not to pay the same price as the paperback.

If you go to the book stores for example, I just went to Books-a-Million over the weekend they're price is nearly $16 per book. Just because its an eBook doesn't mean it should be dirt cheap. So regardless $9.99 (the lowest I've seen it from Amazon) is still a really good prices on a best seller. I'm also a Books-a-Million club member and you still can't beat the prices for the kindle edition for the trilogy. But while these books are "hot" they will still higher priced.

Good point. It's actually HIGHER than the paperback, which on Amazon are $9.57 each. The price at some random local bookstore near you doesn't count. The price at the same online store providing the e-reader and e-books in the format being discussed does. People shopping for Kindle books are shopping on Amazon. They're going to notice if the print copy is less. Yes, local stores will often cost more than Amazon, as they always have, but that's completely beside the point.

Barnes and Noble has each book priced at $29.95. (each) So for all 3 books at 30 dollars thats still a good deal. I also found in Walmart that they are $12.95 and thats because its a discount store.

I agree the price seems to high. I always thought that bundles were supposed to be cheaper than individual parts. Not the case for these books I guess. I can get each book for 9.99 or pay 2 cents more and get all three at once. Makes you kinda wonder why even release this as a bundle at all.

I thought the reviews were supposed to be for the book itself. What you thought of the way it was written, the story line, etc... Not opinions on price. Not useful at all.
