1.0 out of 5 stars Rip-Off! Kindle Price Double Paperback Price, 8 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Elminster Enraged: The Sage of Shadowdale, Book III (Kindle Edition)
FIRSTLY, this 1-star rating is purely for the price of the Kindle version, and not for the story itelf.
£6.29 Mass Market Paperback (08 Feb 12)
£11.87 Kindle Edition (08 Feb 12)
=================================

Can anyone explain why the kindle version is pretty much double the paperback price? I know the trend is to digital so it was a matter of time before the unethical ripped of the unwary, but really?!

Well, unless I see some kind of reasonable and acceptable explanation for this deplorable action, this will have been the last TSR/Wizards of the Coast book I intend buying.

The money is not the issue, the principle is. I was going to replicate my entire Realms paper- and hard-cover collection with Kindle versions, but certainly won't bother now. For that matter, I strongly doubt I will add any new titles to the paperbook collection either.

Very, very, very disappointed in Ripoffs of the Coast, although rumour has it that I shouldn't be. Rumour has it that their new direction has moved so far from the original Forgotten Realms genre that most, if not all the original and best authors (Salvatore, etc), won't have anything to do with them.

Hi Gamwise,

I think some publishers only release a hardcover first and they match the Kindle price until the mass paperback comes out. If you check the mass paperback is not out yet. Basically if you want to read the book early you pay more.
