Tolkien is now available, but it's EXPENSIVE
If you haven't seen it yet, check out this link for details:
The bad news is this:
It's $23.60 for LOTR+Hobbit on paper, and a whopping $37.96 for the same on Kindle! What is up, Amazon? There are no printing costs, no shipping costs, and negligible electronic delivery costs, and yet it's far more expensive than what you are selling in your own store!
Lord of the Rings 3-volume box set on Amazon: You can get the 3 LOTR books in 1 volume for $15.60 right here on Amazon (ISBN 0618343997). The Hobbit sells for $8 (ISBN 0618260307). Total cost $23.60.
On Kindle, it's $37.96 for the same four books!
Same thing with Children of Hurin: $9.72 in paperback, $9.99 in Kindle.
Amazon is ripping us off.
