Amazon: $144.82US
Chapters: $128.09CDN plus I could get another 5% off that with my Chapters card.

Basically for 11 books from Amazon, I could buy 13 books from Chapters. Ugh. While Chapters will never have the dearth of cheapies like Amazon (not really a problem since I don't read them.) Buying a Kobo would give me access to a lot more options for epub stores as well.

So the question is, why do I hold on to my Kindle? Why?
Upgrade your Kindle to firmware 3.4, buy ePubs, make Alf's acquaintance, strip the DRM and get calibre to convert to AZW3.

Cheaper books and you can read them on your Kindle, with the fancy formatting and custom fonts (if present).
