I agree with you Harry. $20 for a book like Fall of the Giants doesn't strike me as expensive. It is however a bit strange for the e-book to cost more than the paperback. The price difference is however negligible in this case and would not deter me from getting the e-book.
In fact I'm glad to hold my kindle instead of a brick-size book.
