Commentary by Michael Wade on Leadership, Ethics, Management, and Life
Michael, While I'm fond of my Kindle, my love is, like my e-book funds, dwindling. The $9.99 price of most Kindle "books" 2-3 months ago has been replaced by $13.49 and $14.99. When the hardback version is only $1.50-$2.00 more, the attractiveness of a Kindle version has diminished.The romance is going through a rocky time and, as with true romances, the problem is one of money.What do you think? Temporary price shift or a long term gouging?
DarkoV,I've noticed lately that I go more for the free editions of the classics. As I understand it, the publishers were complaining about the $9.99 price for fear that customers would start to regard regular hardback prices as too expensive.To me, the big appeal of the Kindle rests with the convenience of being able to get a book within seconds and having a large number of books in one simple device.
