I know they can charge what the want but that just smacks of greed.
There is no way i am going to order it now, no matter how much i want to read it.
No way can they justify that. no shipping or materials.
one really pissed of customer......
Something I have not read mentioned here is what my experience with Kindle book pre-orders. The actual price at the release date is almost always lower than the pre-order price. In fact I cannot recall a time when I did not get charged less for my pre-orders though I rarely do pre-orders of an ebook because, well, ummmm, why? Not like they will run out. I just put it in my watch list and a tickler in my contact/to-do list if it is really important to me. Otherwise I just wait to remember about remembering.
Has Amazon changed this in the last year or so? It has been at least that long since I pre-ordered any book.
