I see today that two books I’m interested in came out today in ebook format, so I checked them out: $9.99 on Amazon. Hmmm. Interesting, but I didn’t buy either one.
Why? I can’t say for sure, but a good potential reason floats to the top: price. Right this minute, that seems too high to me. Certainly not if viewed per book, because I’ve got the ten bucks to spare, but since I read a lot of books–lots and lots of books–that ten dollars will add up pretty quick at ten to fifteen books a month. Is that the only reason? No. But for this potential purchase I think it was the determining one.
