I was hoping someone could provide me some information on the Kindle pricing of Permuted Press books. A few months ago I noticed that most of the Kindle (ebook) versions were much less expensive. Now, the Kindle editions cost MORE than the paperback editions - often a $1 more or higher. It costs me less money to order a paperback and have it mailed to my house with Amazon's free super saver shipping than it does for me to order a Kindle version and have it delivered via whispernet. I had decided to wait and see if the prices dropped back to where they had been, but they don't seem to be changing. I've also noticed quite a few folks posting on the Amazon forums for individual PP books asking why the Kindle editions are more expensive.
I'd love to buy more PP books, but it doesn't make sense for me to buy Kindle versions if they cost more.....and I just don't have the space in my apartment for more physical books. The reason I switched over to a Kindle was to save myself space (and dusting!). It's like someone getting an iPod instead of having a shelf full of CDs. I pay less for .mp3's on iTunes than I would to buy a physical CD. Why would I pay more for an eBook than the physical edition?
It seems odd that an electronic version would cost more. I hope this can either be explained or that the Kindle editions can be reduced in price. I love the books I've read thus far by many of the different PP authors....but I just can't see myself continuing to support them if the pricing stays as it is.
