I often wonder about the amount of complaints about ebook prices in general. It's not like most people need a bank loan to buy one.

Maybe it is because they are not percieved as a physical item. Still I pay for cable, power, internet services etc. without receiving a physical item either.

Perhaps it is new readers who have never bought physical books and think they should be rewarded for reading rather than actually paying to read. Some may not even be aware that they can borrow the ebook or pbook from a library.

I would like ebooks to be cheaper, but then I would like everything to be cheaper.

I agree with your point, but don't see what can be done about it other than flagging bad reviews when possible. Complaining about the complainers seldom has much effect, although I sometimes do it anyway
