And....here's another list I was able to put together today, where Sony's prices seem way out of line. So in spite of some of the titles changing price, there still seems to be lots that don't make sense.

Actually, while compiling this latest list, I came up with what seems to be a pretty easy way to find mis-priced titles....simply pick a category, and start paging through the thumbnails, looking for anything in the $15-$20+ range. Invariably, I'm able to find paperback pricing for those titles on Amazon or Barnes and Nobel. So I think a good thing for Sony to do (rather than having us try to search all these out) would be to have their own folks just scan their database for books in that price range, and compare that list to paperback pricing/availability. I think they'd find where all their problems are!

Anyway Bob, as their still seem to be lots of overpriced titles, I'm hoping you'll still provide the lists supplied here to Sony, rather than assume they've fixed everything! And thanks for doing this! Here's my latest list:
