The price of the ebooks is rather annoying at the moment but hopefully it does eventually get straightened out. The main difference can be seen where the publisher sets the price of the book. |
Here's an example:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Girl-Dragon-Tattoo-Millennium-Trilogy/dp/B002RI9ZQ8/ref=pd_ts_zgc_kinc_341689031_3?ie=UTF8&s=digital-text&pf_rd_p=213619787&pf_rd_s=right-5&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_i=341689031&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_r=0VC5EVFQ9HETGKJ676A3 The girl with a dragon tattoo which you can see is pretty cheap.
However now look at this:
Still not that expensive but £7 for a quite small and pretty old book is a bit much when you dont actually receive anything physical
They key difference can be spotted on the second link though where it says "This price was set by the publisher"
See at the moment it just seems like a lot of publishers dont know how to price ebooks competitively but hopefully they'll get their act together soon enough and make them cheap enough to be worthwhile.
