Book Rant Monday
What’s with the price of some eBooks?!
Let me be clear, I’m not here to rant about the set price of any particular eBook. I’m looking to rant specifically about when you look at a book on Amazon and the paperback version costs LESS than the eBook!
Understand, once a book is read for print, there is almost no additional cost to create an electronic version. However, I do realize these eBabies can’t be given away for free. The economical impact would hurt the entire book industry. However, with zero materials cost, shouldn’t the eBook always be just a little cheaper than any other version? At least be a dollar or two. Come on big 5.
At the end of the day, I prefer print books anyway, so when the paperback is cheaper that makes my decision really easy. But it still makes me throw out a WTF. It just looks like an obvious rip-off attempt.
