I want to ask you where are you buying ebooks? I got Kindle NT, and now I want to buy some books, but TBH prices on Amazon are way too high for an electronic book. I mean, paperback is cheaper in most cases than kindle edition, which is illogical, since there is no manufacturing cost for kindle books. I was suprised by it as I expected Kindle books to be much cheaper than their paper counterparts.
Seems like I will just have to buy paperbacks and then find appropriate PDF, convert it and then use it on Kindle
There are a few publishers who price their ebooks pretty high, especially if you are looking at popular (Best seller) authors who have a new book out. Penguin has some of the highest prices.
Now then, if you just want a certain genre, you can certainly find ebooks that cost the same as mass market paperbacks or lower.
Some sites that can help you find cheap genre books:
Also if you tell any of us or start a thread asking for certain recommendations, you'll have soooo many recs in a short time, you'll be buried (electronically.)
There is a thread somewhere around here talking about where you can buy ebooks, but it always helps to have some idea what kind of books you like to read.
I do buy a lot of books from Amazon as they are the most compatible with Kindle, but I also buy from allromanceebooks.com, sometimes smashwords.com ... there are others.
But seriously, start a thread and ask for recommendations on books and tell people you want books under 5 dollars (or whatever your price range) and you will get lots of recommendations!
