Tax on books

Every time I've purchased a book from Kobo (at least 80 books over a few years), I've been charged GST/PST.

Today I purchased a new book for $9.99, and there was no tax on it. The $9.99 was the final price.

Why is that?

No idea but I've had it happen a couple of times in the past year. I haven't questioned it and just accepted it and moved on.
