It offends me that the publishers are charging the same price for an e-book as they do for hard copy. They are saving thousands in printing, warehousing, and shipping costs.
Amazon say it is the publisher that sets the costs, yet Amazon is really pushing the sale of kindles, so they don't have to warehouse or ship stocks. I love my kindle, but to pay more for an e-book than an hard copy is just wrong.
Does anybody have any ideas how to get publishers to be not so greedy?
I've found that traditionally the cost of a eBook is more expensive while the Hardbacks are out on the shelves. The cost comes down some what when paperbacks are released 6 months (ish) later. If you're finding the price of eBooks expensive maybe you should try some indie authors who don't set their prices as high (most of the time)
