When the Apple/publishers lawsuit was settled, Amazon gave everyone the impression that book pricing was going to go down.
I've noticed, since the introduction of the HD line, that average pricing for books has gone from about 10.00 to 12-15.00/book. I even checked the pricing of books that I have previously purchased and notice this LARGE jump.
I don't know about others, but when the price is slightly above the paperback price, I don't mind paying the extra cost. When the hardcover edition is closer to the price point, I question whether I'm going to buy the book, or not.
I've got the 8.9" HD on order and am re-evaluating that decision.
