The Kindle version of the book I wanted: $5.98
The hard cover version: $6.29
Just a few cents difference. I was surprised.
I ordered the hard copy to come in the mail.
And then found an e-version of a Pete the Cat book for the car. $2.26
I wonder how such a big change in the way we're reading affects authors.
Does the low price and lack of production fees with an e-version book even out the playing field...allowing significantly more people to purchase them and hence writers to still make a profit?
Will the cost of e-books rise to be so much higher than tangible books that we switch back at some point, to paper (for those that have switched)?
It'll be interesting to watch and see. As for me, I still prefer a hard copy, but I'm old school about lots of things (I'm proud of that). ;)
