[QUOTE=HarryT;847832]If you think it's too expensive, don't buy it. A seller has a perfect right to ask whatever they wish for an e-book, just as the customer has a right not to buy it if they feel it's too expensive.
I'm finding that many of the books that I want to buy for my Kindle are virtually the same price as the paperback, often less for paperbacks. In my opinion that is shooting themselves in the foot. I didn't spend $300 on my Kindle to pay the same price I could get the paperback from Amazon or a used bookstore. When a paperback that is listed at $7.99 also sells in Kindle for $7.99 I move on. There are too many books out there to read without feeling like I'm overpaying.
I salute the smart authors that have multi-series paperbacks that give the first book in the series free to hook the reader. That is using Kindle marketing properly.
