i know, it's completely insane. or my favorite example, from french publishing : l'élégance du hérisson
: very nice paper edition (not hardback, but a good quality paperback. i never know what is the difference between trade and mmpb and all those terms, but it's oversized and nice paper) : 20€, reduced to 19€ at the biggest chain bookstore (fnac). same book, mobipocket version : 19€. arg !!!! (this one drives me completely batty because i want to read it but i just can't accept spending 19€ on a drm-ed mobipocket ebook. i wouldn't even pay that much for a drm-free epub edition, sheesh. half that much, and we can talk).
