Carol/Bonadie (bonadie) | 8264 comments I am curious about the new Elmore Leonard book, Djibouti. The plot doesn't exactly call to me, but Leonard is such a master at characters and dialogue that I'm still tempted.

Add me to the irked list...why is the kindle version more than HB? I'll probably buy the kindle version just because I'm trying to downsize my book collection, but it is annoying to pay more! When I got my kindle almost all the books were $9.99. I almost feel like it is a bait and switch!


Mary/Quite Contrary Phillips | 459 comments Joyce...why don't you wait to purchase The Reversal on Kindle? The price may drop closer to 9.99 as sales increase...new releases on day 1 are often priced above 9.99, in this case 14.99, to catch hardcore fans like me who aren't patient or willing to wait. Often prices go down...at least this has been my experience over the last 18 months.

Donnajo | 3673 comments I think I can answer that question alot of people were complaining of that happening with the nook. And how when the price changes from hc to pb at times then the ereader price stays the same. And someone I guess from B&N came back and said it's because the publisher sets the price for the ebook and usually they don't change the price when the book goes down in price. I guess it depends in the long run on the publisher I've seem some books lower but they are also older books. Not saying you couldn't get it cheaper at a ubs or library sale. You just have to check the prices and see which is a better savings. I haven't been to a bookstore in weeks. And I know I resisted alot when the last went. I don't think I bought any book. I kept thinking remember how many you have already and that it's cheaper on the nook. Well that is okay if I don't intend to share the book. As it stands I haven't even bought anything lately on the nook. I have a wish list going but I figured I get a free book or more than 1 each week. Which I don't count since it's free. when I finish the book I'm reading then I'll buy one off the wish list. I figured I finished The passage and I'll finish another then I get to buy one. And I decided not to continue with the B&N membership. It doesn't let you use it towards e books so why keep it. Later if I decide to do it again I can always get it again then.

Good point Mary! I tend to buy certain authors (MC included) as soon as they come out, but I should be more patient. I certainly have plenty of other books piled up to read!

Marcy | 865 comments Add me to the waiting for price to drop bench. I'm holding fast to my mini-rebellion against higher ebook prices, especially since I have plenty of other things to read. Just downloaded the audio of Fall of Angels since the kindle price is outrageous and the DTB is too heavy to handle,

I was just going to post the same thing. The theory I heard was that initially the electronic version is priced at or near the hardcover price (at least the discounted, amazon-type price) so a lower price doesn't undercut the hardcover sales, which peak in the first month or so of release, when, as MQC says, people who don't want to wait do their buying. Then when HC sales tape off the digital price is lowered, because those are the sales that will continue at a steady basis.

Ann (annrumsey) | 14988 comments Marcy:
Exactly. I used to preorder all of my favorite author's new books, now I see no advantage to a preorder since the price may drop by the time I am ready to read a new book on my Kindle. A "First edition" Kindle copy that is $3-5 dollars higher than it may be later is not a good deal. ;(.
