Stores can discount hardback and paperbacks of a title, but because of the new Agency 5 Model (where publisher sets e-cover price and stores act as sales agent on a fixed 30% commission) stores cannot discount ebooks. This is why you see the anomalies. When you find treebook cover price equal or even lower than ebook, it's because the hardback/paperback has been heavily discounted in store -- often, especially on new releases, as a loss-leader. The ebook is being sold at regular publisher RRP. Cheers. Neil
