The Faithful Spy, by Alex Berenson is $8.99 at B&N. Not too bad except it came out about 4 years ago and in my pre-Nook days, I'd try and pick it up at a used bookstore for 1/2 price. But, I have some Sony giftcards from Target, so I thought I'd pop over there and buy it, that would give me 40% off. Sony wants $17.47 for it. Guess I won't be buying it over there. The other books in the series are $8.99 at Sony, and even the newest one is $12.99.
I think B&N should pay attention to our response to the discounted gift cards. They could issue ebook only gift cards at a discount, we'd buy them, and they have all that money upfront before we bought the books. I know, the Agency Model may not let them, but Sony was able to do it,
