Mobipocket on Sony Reader

I know this question has been asked before, but I am in a quandary.

I want to buy a book that is $35 USD in mobipocket format AND $65 USD in Adobe PDF format on ONE EBOOK SITE! I imagine both are DRM-ed? This is on the CyberRead site.

Which do I buy if I want to use it with my Sony Reader? Thanks for any help.

Well, I solved my own problem; I bought the book I wanted on BooksonBoard for $40 USD in ADE format. But why such a steep price differential between mobipocket and other formats?

We need an search engine to list the price of a book on different ebook websites. ^_^

Note for the future, that it is possible to read non-DRMed MobiPocket books on the Sony readers. You would have to take the "mobi" and "deDRM" it, though if it were DRMed. But this is generally easy.
