I am quite impressed with the way eBook pricing works. In this case, I’m using Amazon’s pricing as an example, but it’s not much different on Barnes and Noble’s site.
When I went to purchase the Kindle edition of the book I found that it’s actually priced *higher* than the hardcover edition! On what planet is it more expensive to ship some bits around than it is to print a hardcover novel and ship it across the country several times? This is why I keep a ‘Kindle over $10’ shopping list. If there’s an eBook priced over $10, and I can wait to buy it, I put it on that list. Periodically I sweep through and find those where their price has dropped below $10. If they have, and I still want it, I’ll jump on it.
In this case, I have something like 50 unread books, and Artemis can wait a bit while I work my way through the backlog. Sorry Andy, you’ll have to wait to get my $1.
