Not to mention the waste in resources (printing, storing, shipping, materials) with unsold pbooks. If there is a realistic and convincing argument for why any publisher would charge the same amount for an ebook that they do for a pbook, I haven't read it yet. Other than greed and slack-jawed reluctance to change.
