How many books bought from Kindle Store
I really expected to buy most non-free ebooks from other sources than Kindle since I don't like to be part of a captive audience. But like Amazon gives the best bargains in paper books, I have found that the Kindle Store is often much cheaper than the same ebooks from other sources. This is a big disappointment.
Automatically downloaded digital ebooks really are essentially free -- but of course they can't be since that's how money is made. But there's no excuse for pricing them higher than the Kindle Store -- I'll always buy from the lowest cost store when everything else is the same. But the non-Kindle source should also not impact my labor -- they should send the selected ebooks direct to Kindle, as some of them will do already.
