Why books like Storm of Swords Part 1 the kindle version costs 5.99 and the paperback 3.86? It does not make sense the difference! A Song of Ice and Fire (3) - A Storm of Swords: Part 1 Steel and Snow (Reissue)

VAT is charged on ebooks but there are lots of occasions when the ebook is cheaper.

Ebook/paperbook pricing has been discussed to death. You can find a lot of information if you use the search box.

Regardless, the combined edition of Storm of Swords is actually cheaper than the paperback on Kindle, so why not buy that?: A Song of Ice and Fire (3) - A Storm of Swords Complete Edition (Two in One)

Oracle is correct, I have a Kindle but I dont mind ordering the paperback edition of a book if it is cheaper. I prefer it in some ways as I am one of the old guard who likes the feel of a book rather than an anonymous ebook :)

Save a fortune on parking fees and shoe leather and petrol.Take that into account and the kindle book is invariably cheaper.
