New Dan Brown book, cheaper to buy paper version!

Hey,

With all the fuss around the new Dan Brown book and the ebook versions, I thought I'd check out the costs, for the hardback version its as follows:

Amazon: 4.99!!!
WHSmith: 9.49

The ebook version that requires no paper or manufacturing processes to make:

WHSmith: 13.29!
Waterstones: 9.49

So tell me, how does this work!! I know Amazon will heavily discount such a big release, but surely there must be more money to be made in books from the ebook versions??

As far as I can see, no one has learnt from the music industry's internet fiasco with the pirates, they seem to what us to go on the internet and download them for free

rant over..

Craig
