I don't know if it's just as cheap to produce but they certainly cost just about as much and actually sometimes quite a bit more! For one academic book, I can buy a new paperback version for US$30 but the ebook version is...guess what....US$99! Yes!

Luckily for me though, I haven't seen errors in academic ebooks. Perhaps quality control for academic publishers is a high priority for academic presses. And generally, I don't buy non-academic digital books because I only read them once. I borrow them from the library.
