I got a Kindle EReader just the other day. I thought it might be a fun way to keep up with books as they come out Stateside, and see what was new, and save on shipping costs. Also our book club reads somewhat hard to find titles sometimes, and this might save time in ordering books, just 'poof' there they are on the Kindle!
And so for my first book purchase I wanted the latest Sookie Stackhouse novel, Dead Reckoning, which comes out May 3rd, when I will be back in Norway, having just missed the release date in the US.
WTF? They are charging more for the Kindle version than the hardback on Amazon!!!!!!!!!
That's just EVIL. Apparently that is the publisher's doing, no Amazon's. Seriously? $16 for a book in a digital format? Highway robbery. No paper, no delivery costs, nothing. MORE than the hardback!!!!
