I was intrigued after reading about Alethea Kontis' book, Enchanted, on John Scalzi's blog; so I went over to Amazon to check it out, thinking I might get the ebook for my iPod Touch.

$11.55 for the hardcover version and $10.36 for the digital version?! For some reason I expected the digital version to be maybe about half the price of the physical book because, well, you don't have printing costs, or storage or shipping costs, and don't you want to entice readers to buy it? Pricing it so close to the physical copy makes no sense whatsoever to me. I think I'll see whether Borders or MPH carries the title, and if not, how much it'll cost for them to order it for me. If I'm going to pay that much, I'd rather have the real thing anyway.
