Unhappy The Hero of Ages: Book Three of Mistborn

Hi,
I just found out that all three books by Brandon Sanderson are now available as ebooks, the first one being given away for free by tor.
Imagine my dismay when I saw the price- 20 dollars
Now, the hardcover costs as much and I am supposed to pay that for an ebook? While not a lot of money per se, I do have to earn that and don't see the justification for that high a price...
Oh well, guess I will have to wait a bit
cheers,
kaas

They are all available for Kindle:

Book 1 and 2 are 7.99, book 3 is 9.99... or course you probably have 1 for free from TOR.

who is Denny Crane? A quick search shows him to be some kind of actor for a series - or did you mean somebody else entirely?

Yes, he is a character on a TV show played by William Shatner. He has the "mad cow" (Alzheimers - but not really yet) and blames all his faux pas on it. So, he is getting stupider with age.

Do I recognize sarcasm and amusement in that sentence? Let me tell you, young lady, that with my 27 years, I have aquired wisdom and smarts beyond accounting!
I am the epitome of getting smarter with age- at least one IQ point per year, beginning with a base of 50! That makes me smarter than... say a coffee machine
actually, if i think about it- the coffee machine at my working place has cost 14K Euro and probably is smarter than me
now you have done it and I am truly depressed

p.s.: it is still broken every third day...what a waste of money

sarcastic ? me ??? never ! especially about someone whose name means "fromage". everybody knows how smart cheese is after all. i mean, if you can get a job in a place that has a 14K euro coffee machine, you must be doing SOMETHING right ! right ?

(i really am sincerely sorry about the capillary effect in microelectronics circuit boards though).

do not make fun of cheese- t'is a noble and tasty creation. the peak of human achievement and -if i remember correctly- when i lived in france, was quite well liked by the french!
thus it is only natural for me to strive for the same level of perfection and tastiness like cheese.
I would also have you know, that the moon consists of cheese and all great inventions were related to cheese!
