Amazon and B&N offer eBook ($14.99) as well as the hardback.

Normally $15 is out of my price range. I usually will not pay more than $10 (and even that's only for have-to-haves), but this has become one of my favorite series to date, so I don't mind as much.

At least get the ePub so you can fix the errors easily. Yes, I do expect there to be errors given how some of the eBooks in the series have been released.

Yea, thanks. I just pre-ordered as well. A $4.00 discount for ebooks from the hardback price and still people complain.

That's because it's a rip-off. The hardcover has a 34% discount while the eBook has no discount with no possible discount. This is the fun of agency.

I understand how the BPH handles print. They charge based on the container. But an eBook doesn't have a container that changes. So set the price appropriately and stop ripping us off.

They really don't. Maybe they sell us on paying the price based partly on the "prestige" format, but the main selling point of a hardcover is the same as a movie ticket: first release.

But they have different price points for different print formats/containers. Once an eBook is done, it's in that format/container and that version it isn't going to change.

Cool Amazon's blurb

SPOILER ALERT
Spoiler:
Quote:
Book Description
Publication Date: November 27, 2012
HARRY DRESDEN LIVES!!!

After being murdered by a mystery assailant, navigating his way through the realm between life and death, and being brought back to the mortal world, Harry realizes that maybe death wasn’t all that bad. Because he is no longer Harry Dresden, Chicago’s only professional wizard.

He is now Harry Dresden, Winter Knight to Mab, the Queen of Air and Darkness. After Harry had no choice but to swear his fealty, Mab wasn’t about to let something as petty as death steal away the prize she had sought for so long. And now, her word is his command, no matter what she wants him to do, no matter where she wants him to go, and no matter who she wants him to kill.

Guess which Mab wants first?

Of course, it won’t be an ordinary, everyday assassination. Mab wants her newest minion to pull off the impossible: kill an immortal. No problem there, right? And to make matters worse, there exists a growing threat to an unfathomable source of magic that could land Harry in the sort of trouble that will make death look like a holiday.

Beset by enemies new and old, Harry must gather his friends and allies, prevent the annihilation of countless innocents, and find a way out of his eternal subservience before his newfound powers claim the only thing he has left to call his own…His soul.

What is it Jim Butcher has against eBooks from B&N? The ePub from B&N is available for pre-order and yet there's no link.
