Frustrated...

So I'd put a robert Kiyosaki book as well as the Night Angel trilogy on my kindle wishlist. Only to discover they're "no longer available" Can someone please tell me why rhe publishers are intent on killing ebooks? Don't they (and the authors) see what I see: an additional revenue stream and a chance to actually have a better image with consumers by giving them more options on how they consume the content they're willing to pay for?

I worry that with recent interviews sounding like "it will kill our industry" etc, that soon you won't be able to find favorite books on the ereaders? This is not to say I don't like regular books (you should see my sehlf_ but having them in digital format (which means re buying some - again more money for authors) is just easier to take with you, if you move for instance.

Sorry for the ramble, but this really touched a nerve. Stop trying to tell me how I should consume your product, give me the option, and you'll have a happy customer. And stop trying to fight anything new. You'll lose.

If I were you, I'd "purchase" the books through an "alternative" method.

It's published by Hachette. Isn't that one of the groups Amazon is still finishing negotiations?
