Pure greed at work There is absolutely NO reason for the paperback to be less expensive than the e-book! I will not pay any more than $9.99 for ANY e-book, no matter how badly I want to read it. There's still libraries.
The whole point of jumping on the ebook bandwagon was to get books for less. That's what they advertised. Now, it seems the teeth and claws are coming out...sigh. If Amazon was smart, they would price their ebooks at $5 and sell the HELL out of them. I'd buy 3 or 4 right now. But priced as they are, they just go into my wish list and sit there. Wise up Amazon.
