I'm not referring to free book specials, which obviously do increase in price.

Generally, when a Kindle book goes down in price, is there a possibility of that price ever increasing again? For example, someone mentioned one of the Obama books in another thread. Is that a special limited time sale because he just became president, or can we safely count on the new lower price to stay the same (or even decrease further over time)?

I've seen it happen.... I think the Obama book just came out in paperback, which is why the price dropped. I have great timing.  :p

Book prices change all the time. A new book comes out, is offered at a steep discount to encourage sales, then goes back to the list price when the newness wears off. Then all of a sudden the book comes out as a movie, it's republished, offered at a whole different price.

It's like anything...you find a good deal and buy it, good for you. You pay a higher price when something is new...well, you got the benefit of it being new.

I am a little mystified why many people expect Kindle book prices to be static. If they were, they'd probably be $9.99 -- for all of them. Is that what we really want? I sure don't!

And Pidgeon...I posted a comment to your message over on the other thread.

Oh I definitely agree with you. The reason I'm asking is because I don't want to overload my Kindle now by snapping up all of the good deals before I even get the device in my hands. That other thread about the battery issues has me a bit wary about buying too much too soon.

CS. Like I said in the other thread, you won't have anything to worry about. As far as I know, I'm the only one that's ever had that problem, but that's only because I went totally whacko and bought everything in sight. :D
