+1. That is kind of a kick in the face that the paperback is $7.99 (or $0.01 if you go used) & the ebook is 4 bucks more. And if some of the books are in fact $7.99, why wouldn't the first book be offered at that price, as an enticement to get you hooked on the series. I honestly would like to know the strategy behind that. Well, they are not getting my money at the current price.
These books should of course be in the public domain by now, since Mr. MacDonald passed away 26 years ago (RIP),but of course that is a whole other argument...
