Pricing of Laura Bush's new book

Just got an email from Kobo's ereading newsletter trying to sell me Spoken from the Heart, (Simon & Schuster). They want $16.49 for the e book. The hard cover book at Borders is $18.00. That e book price is ridiculous.

Sony = $15.74
B&N = $14.99
Amazon = $14.99
from the publisher = $14.99

...of course if you go by the publisher the HC is $30. They don't seem to get that pretty much no one sells a HC for list price and folks don't care what the list on the HC is they care what the street price is.


Some of the other new releases (not sure if they were from Simon & Schuster) have started out around this price and after a week or two dropped in price. Hard to say if this one will too or not.

Eeeeek. I'd say wait a couple months, it'll probably go down to $11 or so.

Although I own a Kobo reader, I never intended to buy ebooks from Kobo. Most of there ebooks have prices way higher than other competitors.

You'll probably be telling us the price of something soon, though. Right?

I don't think it's over priced enough. And I don't think the Bush family has exploited us enough.

"The sign of a healthy mind is the ability to just let go and grow up."

Is that in the book?

Nice lady and all, but it's just her part in the ongoing attempt to whitewash her husband's presidency. The ebook version is definitely not worth the price they're charging for it. But then I don't think that any ebook is worth that price.

And on the cover could be a picture of him getting a shoe thrown at him!

Well, compared to Obama's presidency, I think W's looks pretty good! At least he never bowed to the mayor of Sarasota Florida
