Ah too bad, it was $2.99 for at least a week. I was maybe a bit disgruntled that the price dropped after I bought it, but didn't really begrudge the $7.59. I probably would have paid almost any price since I read The Magus 15 years ago & was spellbound and was excited to read it again as soon as the ebook was available. I don't mind paying $11-$13 for recently released ebooks I want to read now. But I agree, if it's not something I'm dying to read right away, then my personal threshold to "stockpile" for reading at some later date is probably $4 or less, particularly for older titles.
I'll put them on an amazon reminder list, and also someone here recommended the ereader IQ website which tracks amazon prices and will email you if it drops to a price you specify. It seems good although I haven't actually received any emails in the couple weeks I've used it.
