I've just taken a closer look at Hodder's Kindle ebook pricing. It does seem that this might be an isolated incident.

But even the general case is bad. The RRP for their Kindle books is lower (usually) that the RRP for the paperback edition, Amazon almost invariably discount the paperback price by 30% or more. Which means that in all but one of the books I've looked at so far (20+), the Kindle edition is now more expensive (by 1.00 or more) than the paperback from Amazon.

Way to kill Kindle sales, Hodder. Perhaps that's the idea.
