Great! Thanks for posting. That's one of the titles I was surprised wasn't available.

at last! Open Road said they would do this in their initial press announcement.

Great news - can't wait to read it again. I have given away every copy I have ever bought. My favourite book of all time.

$US12.99 - For a book where Amazon sells a used paper copy for $US1.99?

And of course, "This price was set by the Publisher."

Here's another blurb for them: "No sale."

So, now you're comparing a new "print" to a used print? I can understand outrage when an electronic book is priced over the hardcover, but outrage because it's prices higher than a second-hand book!?!?!?

It is a *40* year old book for Pete's sake! Why wouldn't I compare it to used??? USED and the Public Library are the principal competitors. In 10 years it is in the Public Domain in both Australia and Canada.

And if I buy it used, read it, lend it to friends and family - it STILL has residual value.

I don't think that the prices of ebooks should be compared to the prices of used books. And just because it will be part of the public domain doesn't mean that somebody will give it for free today. It is their last chance to make a real profit on the book.

On the other hand, the complete works of William Shakespeare are sold as Kindle books for $5.05 when they *are* part of the public domain, and you can get the used paperback from $2.38, and the used hardcover from $0.41.
