This whole thing came about because I was messing around with http://inkmesh.com/
and seeing how accurate it was.
So why is an ebook ever more expensive than the pbook. This makes zero sense to me as a consumer. And it should make zero sense to the Author's and Publisher's as well.
Example: The pbook is 7.99 but the ebook is 9.99
Who thought that up? I mean you have Author's and Publisher's complaining about revenue, I see that all the time.
I don't have a Kindle so it doesn't really effect me. But I am just curious does this inspire piracy. It doesn't for me but its got to for some out there, especially the fence sitters. The guys that think piracy is what it is and this is good enough reason to jump in as any. And even if it doesn't inspire piracy, does it inspire someone going to the library instead of buying the kindle version?
This really isn't a piracy post (though I mention piracy) but more of a consumer post. If I had a Kindle and I was wanting this book this would sure make me pause and actually get a bit pissy. And I would probably step back from buying this book.
