Amazon in an interesting move reduced the price of few of its e-books from $9.99.
“Today, industry newsletter PublishersLunch notes that Amazon has further lowered the price tags of e-book versions of other popular titles. These include: “Wolf Hall” by Hilary Mantel ($8.80); “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett ($7.60); “The Girl Who Played with Fire” by Stieg Larsson ($7.99); “Pursuit of Honor” by Vince Flynn ($8.00); “What the Dog Saw: And Other Adventures” by Malcolm Gladwell ($9.00); and “Beautiful Creatures” by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl ($9.00).”
Barnes and Noble has apparently matched the price. Interesting. Are they making any profit at all???
