One forthcoming topic will be the frequently high prices of E books, such as the new Ken Follett novel, which so far I haven't found discounted as an e-book. $35. Yikes! It's actually much pricier than the p-version at Amazon. Will welcome your thoughts, which I might quote in PW.
P.S. I need to drop by the Macmillian site again and find out the lowdown on the exact formats Jeff's book will be available in.

Amazon is $20.99 but if you do not purchase anything else with it, you pay $3.99 shipping for a grand total of $24.98.
BooksOnBoard has it for $23.28 in MS Reader which you can then convert to BBeB for the Sony 500/505.
But once again, Mobipocket comes in dead last and as clueless as can be at $35.
All the other ebook shops I checked out (that have it) have higher prices then BooksOnBoard. So basically with shipping, you only save $1.70 from Amazon's price. That is sad. I would never pay that much for an ebook regardless. But I really do think ebook prices are TOO FRIGGING HIGH for some of these new "bestsellers".
