TheBookseller: Amazon to Set U.K. Kindle Bookstore Prices

http://www.thebookseller.com/news/12...kindle-uk.html

Quote:
However, unlike in the United States where the top five publishers set their e-book prices, Amazon will dictate the pricing of its e-books and has promised they will be the lowest in the market. Speaking to The Bookseller, Steve Kessel, senior vice president of Amazon Kindle, also predicted Kindle sales of a book would outstrip its paperback sales by next year.

Seriously...Bezos is intent on taking eBooks mainstream, and is really leveraging Amazon's incumbent position well.

I have my son's Study Abroad UK address as one of the options on my Manage Your Kindle page and I frequently find a UK price that is much cheaper than the US Agency pricing. Especially for UK authors such as Marian Keyes etc.

I admit to having my Kindle home hopping back and forth to get better pricing and/or availability way too often but I sure do hope Amazon never stops me.

Sadly I expect the Publishers will eventually try to have me arrested.

One thing I love about Amazon's main site is that I can log into their U.K. store and buy gifts and stuff for friends over there with no issues from my US account.
