I suspect most people are in the camp of mostly/only ebooks or mostly/only paper. Therefore it makes sense that they are priced independently. I understand why the comparison is made - it's natural to perceive the value of the same book in different formats as being related - but the more important comparison for the seller is what is this competing against? So is it priced similarly to other books in the same genre is more relevant that is it priced similarly to its own twin in another medium.

Just a comment... We're talking about price, not value. And when we talk about price, we talk about associated costs and profit, not intangible value that a specific customer gives to an item. According to that logic, if I like more potatoes that oysters, I should think that it is logic that potatoes cost more than oyster even it's easier to get potatoes than oysters.

And, BTW, as a customer my desire is ALWAYS to get the things I like in the cheapest way in the legal/official channels.
