Add 'in America' to the end of that sentence, and I will agree with you
But I really think many posters here often forget how very, very many people there are in countries outside the USA
I am in Canada and can't but from B&N at all; the Sony store is an absolute wasteland, and Amazon is an option for me, but due to its lack of coupon codes and pricing in American dollars, is consistently more expensive. I used to buy from Fictionwise, but they have pretty much been decimated by the advent of agency pricing. Kobo is, far and way, the best game in town here in Canada. It is just not a comparable situation to that of an American reader.
