I see frequent posts from folks unhappy about the price of new releases. Most posts imply they must have the latest release as soon as it's available. Why the frantic rush to get the new release? There are scores and scores of books on my suspect list. I rarely pay more than used bookstore paperback price for anything because that's where they'll all wind up eventually. New paperback pricing is ok once in a while for special circumstances but for the most part there's no reason to pay that much when there's plenty to read otherwise. I'm just curious why folks get so frantic over new releases with the attendant upset over pricing rather than enjoying some of the many thousands of other good reads available elsewhere.
