According to the information in the Amazon UK forum a lot of books have become 50% to 100% more expensive, and a lot of books are now more expensive than the paperback (or sometimes even the hardback) version.
Publishers can set really silly prices. Look at this Stephen King novel.

Hardback (2008): RRP 18.99, Amazon: 8.99
Paperback (2009): RRP 7.99, Amazon: 4.99
Audio Download (2008): RRP 29.14, Amazon: 15.29
Ebook (2008): 17.99 "This price was set by the publisher"

They obviously set the price in 2008 and didn't reduce it when the paperback came out.

Sigh.... well, with a 400+ TBR pile, I can wait out the silliness.
