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.

  1. I am not interested in e-book at all. Prbably because I had bad impressions.

    I needed to make minimum order for the first logging in. I had problem with moving ebooks (in Japanese) from one laptop to the new one. Since the software is in Japanese, I had not idea how to solve problems. It's ridiculous that my money was gone when there were problems with it.

    E-books are cheaper but they can't be really possessed and I don't like to see texts on blinking surface. I'd rather enjoy my old plain books.
