I am seeing this more and more. I have already written to one publisher and will continue to lobby for reasonable Kindle prices. It costs next to nothing to create the e-version of a book and they only have to do it once and can sell it over and over and over. I refuse to be swindled just because I own a Kindle. There are a lot of great books out there that I won't be reading because of these practices.

I wish Kindle books WERE $9.99 as I was led to believe when I bought my Kindle. Now it's hard to find a book I want for less than $12.99. Am I an unhappy Kindler? Yes, and No. I'm elderly (love that distinction) and my eyesight even with glasses is not good anymore. With the Kindle, I can control the size of the print. I am reading more than I would if I bought a paperback.

How do you know it "costs very little to produce an e-book?" What are you basing that on? Does it even matter? Our economy isn't based on the cost it takes to produce something...it is based on what we're willing to pay. If you can produce something for $2 and sell it for $10, you would. Your investors would demand you try to get the maximum profit out of your product.

This is the kind of thing that infuriates me...I was so happy when I got my kindle. It goes everywhere with me. I also am getting a wee bit older & the ease of changing the text size is wonderful, but to have to rake some elderly person's credit card over the coals for $12.99 per book just makes me crazy. My mom is also a kindler & she's on a fixed income & books are considered a luxury.Why? I always thought that reading is a good thing, it enriches your life, & I can't think of a better way to spend some well needed down time. I just hate opening my credit card billls now....

When I ordered my Kindle, I understood that the most I would ever pay for an ebook was $9.99. They lied. The only reason I have gone ahead and bought a couple for higher prices is because I have a vision problem and the Kindle is much easier for me to read from than a book. The real rip is that the charger card self destructed within a very short time. Stuff made in China scares me.

I, too, refuse to pay over $10 for a Kindle "book". One thing that I have enjoyed with my Kindle is that in the search for free and inexpensive "books", I have come across some authors I never heard of but like a great deal. Right now I have close to 800 books on my Kindle. Only a couple of those were over $10. A large amount were free or under $5. I do still buy real books in paperback form if it's an author and/or series I really like. Overall, I really do love my Kindle!

I'm only downloading free or 99 cent books. NO electronic book should EVER be over 99 cents, let alone 13.99 and up. I don't care how "popular" the author is. The 150.00 cost for a gadget that can only display books was supposed to be offset by being able to buy books a little cheaper. What a rip off this has turned out to be. Amazon is laughing all the way to the bank at all of us idiots duped into buying a Kindle. Biggest waste of money EVER.
