Book With a Bang

Batman. That's all I have to say about that.

Amazon is selling these very reasonably priced and deep and expansive science fiction anthologies. I am so much in heaven that I honestly can't read them all. I got the science fiction megapack a while back, and it will serve me well, I'll think about buying more books when I'm done with the ones I have.

I still have to read the 11th Sookie Stackhouse novel, Dead Reckoning. Not that I'm going to buy it on kindle. Publishers are asking for 12.99$ for that book. It does NOT include sharing, which is why I can't borrow it from a friend. That is more expensive than a paperback, on top of that, I can't loan it out, I can't resell it, and it costs the publisher less money to send it to me than to print a book. Am I being stingy in expecting a sub 10$ price point for digital novels? Please tell me that I am the sane one, and the publishers are evil for charging THAT grade price for a pulp fiction grade novel in a digital format and disabling sharing... because I honestly need to hear people agree with me on this. I need to hear people agree that it is not okay, and it is not worth buying for that much money.

That type of terrible value just makes me mad.

At least Amazon has a ridiculous list of great free music from really entertaining bands. There is something there for everyone.
