So, in reality, my price point is at best, about HALF what a paperback would cost... In general, if it's more than $3.00, I wait, get it at the library, or read it on paper from the library.
I think it's very strange to buy a product not based on its use to you, but based on how much profit you think the producer deserves to make.
