TERRIFIC BUT PRICEY,
This review is from: Fifty Shades Trilogy Bundle: Fifty Shades of Grey; Fifty Shades Darker; Fifty Shades Freed (Kindle Edition)
Like so many thousands, I switched to Kindle for ease of available reading material, to not have stacks of books all over the house, and to save money on my reading habit. Using Kindle has only accomplished the first thing; VERY DISAPPOINTING!!! I am interested in this set of books based on having read the first few chapters, however I am NOT INTERESTED in paying inflated prices. It would be helpful to me, and I am sure to your reading audience, to have an explanation of why in a lot of cases, your prices exceed the bookshelf price. I recently got stung when I purchased the first 2 books in the Hunger Games seies, only to discover that I could have gotten all 3 for a liitle obver $15.00 (I paid more than that for the first 2). I was unable to cancel the order and get all 3 for the better price. That was very shoddy on your part. Continuing practices of this kind will not help your bottom line, as I am sure others, like myself will only buy the cheaper offerings. Go to Costco where you can get new books for $5.97.

Love to Read says:
Not sure what the beef is; on Amazon the paperback is 42˘ cheaper than the kindle version (less than the price of a soda pop). There are many books I'd like to download that have been out for ages that are still over $20 on kindle and closer to $30 in paperback. You just have to set your priorities. $20 dollars is too much for me, but with all the hype, $10 seemed doable.
