Is Kindle kidding you?
K, so last week there was fundraiser and I won the raffel prize of Kindle Fire (new).
When I finally got around to setting it up, I looked on to find a few Kindle books to buy. Pissed is an understatment. I found Kindle Books (KB) that cost more than the physical book to buy. That makes no sense, since it cost next to nothing to distribute the book, no cost of printing, yet the price of new/bestsellers for KB was similar or just cheaper by a little to the physical book.
I was lucky to have won my Kindle thanks to a 20$ raffel ticket I bought, but it really must put people who paid the full price for the Kindle into a crazy rage to find out the prices of the KB.
But the best part is that if you buy the KB, you don't own the book, your just renting it, so your only buying the rights to the books, which means if Amazon or the publisher sees fit at anytime, can take away the rights to the book, and know this because i read the agreement when I was setting-up my Kindle.
While the KB or electronic book does help the environment, it sure as hell fucks over everybody that buys/uses one.
