I am enjoying the kindle and enjoy the variety of books available but am concerned regarding the pricing.

I appreciate that there are a lot of free books out there and that you can get many books at similar price (or lower than paerback).

I really want to branch out in terms of what I read and am getting into historical fiction, but I can't understand how a kindle download can be £2.50 more than a paperback. I appreciate that there must be costs in adapting the novels for kindle and that new books like new films can attract higher premiums. Where the book it is adapted from is a few years old, however, I would have thought that pricing would reflect that, but it doesn't seem to.

I have also seen that certain publishers may be price fixing e books. It seems that with this and the ebook VAT, much of the advantage of the kindle's portability and convenience are minimised. This also does not reward the ecological savings from not cutting down trees.

Please don't get me wrong. I really like the kindle itself and I am not about to trade it in, but I thought I would express my thoughts.
