FINALLY.......

A book that I have been waiting on for two years because of the powers that be, has finally reduced in price from $14.99.  I will not publicly say what it is because they probably go back and bump the price up again.  I have went on to other authors and books in the meantime and have found other authors that are just as good.  I made a conscious effort to not pay an exorbitant amount for an ebook because of the principle of the thing now.

Re: FINALLY.......

So you're not going to tell us the name of this book?

 

That's helpful.

Re: FINALLY.......

You've been waiting for it to come down from $14.99 for two years?  I thought most ebooks didn't go to that price point until 7 months ago.  Now I'm really curious.

Re: FINALLY.......

A discussion about ebooks that doesn't list the title of the book.....  You wait for two years to buy a book and won't tell us the name when we could be enjoying it too???  Come one, tell us already.  What is the name of the book?  It's like talking about a great meal at a great resteraunt and not telling us the name of the place.  What's the point?  Tell us.

Re: FINALLY.......

Not going to divulge this book because I think there are people out there that look for this thing and manipulate prices because of it.  I had a lot of books on my WISH LISTS and got to thinking that they could leave the price as it was, with them hoping that human wants would win over.  I have stopped putting things on my wish list also.

I'm no longer curious.  I think your responses have pretty much answered the question.

I'm quite certain that the big publishers have nothing better to do than read individual posts here on the message boards to determine what people want and then raise those book / e-book prices.  Supply and demand rules!  :smileywink:

 

Thanks for the explanation.  Now I can ignore this thread with a clear conscience..

Re: FINALLY.......

I have stopped thinking about eBooks because I believe that the publishers can read my mind, and that they'll raise the price if I think about books I want. 

 


Don't buy from Random House, Macmillan, or Penguin until the agency model is COMPLETELY dead.
