Margaret Atwood - The Year of the Flood

Is released today and I really want it, but damn! The Ebook is almost as expensive as the hardback!

Any thoughts of whether the price might drop?

She usually rockets to the best sellers list, so hopefully prices should come down soon.

The Year of the Flood

Currently 30% off at the eBook Store by Sony. Now $18.86 Reg $26.95. (Still pricey!)

Yep, that's where I saw it. Not on Amazon/Kindle yet...

Oh a related question. Is there any way to know what format the book is in on the Sony Bookstore?

I'd prefer Epub, but don't know if they are there yet. I've not purchased anything from the Sony store yet.

It's now on Kindle at $14.82 - this seems to be a new price point of sorts for launching hardcover editions - all that I've followed have eventually dropped to 9.99 or below - but you may have to wait for the paperback release for the ebook price to fall.

I believe it will hit the 'eBook Store Canada' best sellers list shortly and Sony's current policy is to price these at $9.99.

Oh, that. I purchased my 505 at Target and it came with a code for free download of that particular book.

Weird thing was that it would not let me download it until I entered my credit card information which I had avoided until today.
