Rising Kindle eBook prices.

I just noticed that "Fall of Giants" by Ken Follett sells its Kindle eBook version for $ 19.99 while its hardbook version sells for $ 19.39.

That's the first time I've seen an eBook version sell for MORE than a pBook version.

However, 985 pages makes it's Page/dollar value 49.27. Of the 60 eBooks on my Wish List it ranks 8 by its page/dollar value as follows:

1. Wilderness Warrior = 96.10
2. Titan = 83.28
3. Pride of Carthage = 61.14
5. 1491 = 60.28
6. The Great Upheaval = 52.96
7. The Israel Lobby = 49.65
8. The Fall of Giants = 49.27

It appears that some publishers are using my page/dollar value method of evaluating ebooks to actually set prices. That is really too bad. I hope others don't follow.
