Kindle store books become pricier


I purchased the Stieg Larsson thriller The Girl Who Played with Fire on February 12th for $5.00. Now it is on sale for $7.99, a noticeable price appreciation. Is it the effect of Random House books appearing in the iBooks store? In my opinion, e-Books should be cheaper. They are cheaper to replicate and distribute. They cannot be easily shared with anyone else, which in theory should lead to more individual purchases.

  1. Is the DoJ lawsuit the right solution? I think it is. If the publishers are finding it hard to offer books at a price Amazon can, they should out-innovate it and not resort to MFN practices.
