SINCE I CAN GET A SAMPLE OF THE BOOK ON MY KINDLE TO EVALUATE MY DESIRE TO READ IT.. I MAKE MY DECISION BASED ON THE SAMPLE AND THEN THE PRICE.OF COURSE THERE IS ALWAYS THE COMMUNITY LIBRARY FOR ME TO GET A COPY OF THE BOOK. THE PHILADELPHIA FREE LIBRARY LOANS BOOKS FOR MY KINDLE FOR NOTHING.I HOPE THIS IS HELPFUL TO YOU.
It is, thanks! Blessings, E
Most of the time when I pay a higher price it's because I've gotten a free one in a series and I want to read the rest of the series. lol
I've done that as well. Thanks for sharing, Blessings, E
It depends on the book. I am willing to pay more for a resource book or educational material than a novel. The novels I pay more for are recent releases I don't want to wait for. Tina Hunt
Tina, I find I'm that way, too. I pay a lot more for my knitting books than for most novels. I'm not sure if that's good or bad, but it's the truth. Thanks for stopping by! Blessings, E
I bought "Gone Girl" for (I believe) $12.99. Came highly recommended, and it was a good read, although $12.99 for a ne-book is ridiculous. My debut novel came out three weeks ago at $4.99. My friends have bought it, some strangers, and I've received all positive feedback (even from the strangers), but we'll see how it goes. If I need to lower it by a buck or two, to get it on some of those Kindle lists, I will.
Martha, it's a hard line to walk. I think everyone is still in the experimentation mode. Thanks for stopping by! Blessings, E
It depends on the book and author, but I don't think I would normally pay more than $10.
Glenda, thanks for stopping by and letting me know. Blessings, E
I think it's silly when an ebook is the same price--or sometimes higher--than a printed book. Unless there is a drastic difference between the two, I'll just buy the printed book. I know, I'm still old school. But I can loan out printed books much more easily (because not everyone I know has a kindle). Plus they just feel more real and tangible...
I paid $12.95, but I didn't like it. Perhaps it was a book for my book discussion group that I needed soon. I am also bummed about not being able to loan more from my Kindle. If I purchased a paperback, I would pass it around freely. I reuse nonfiction books on my Ereader, but I almost never read a novel twice.
