I’m Not Paying $18.99 For King’s New Book

One great thing about Kindle is the books are cheaper than even Costco. Lately, however, we’ve seen the prices escalate from an initial $9.99 for almost everything to $12.99. $12.99 now seems to be the norm to buy a new Kindle book. Today, we’ve reached a new high, or low depending on your perspective. Stephen King’s new book “11/22/63” is $18.99! Granted it’s 960 pages and it’s billed as an enhanced eBook edition, but $18.99 is above and beyond for even the story master. I put it on my “Wish List.” I wish it was cheaper in price.

  1. Yet I was able to buy brand new Paper books at Borders this weekend for between 8.53 to 12.58 for new history titles. Used books can be purchased on line for just about as much as the shipping cost. Further when I am done with them I can loan them to friends and my reader never locks up. Seems like the new digitial media is going to end up as expensive as the old model…

  2. I’ve been using the library for the past 2 years. I can’t believe how much money I’ve saved. I can check out everything on-line too. If it’s a new book, there’s usually a waiting list, but it’s never a long wait. The only problem is I can’t share the books with my friends. With the money I’ve saved not buying books, I can play more golf!!
