Today I looked at a book that was suggested in an Amazon email and it is $15.37 on Kindle[/size]! The book was 'Wicked Prey' by John Sandford.

Silly me, I really thought books would get cheaper and the 9.99 wasn't too bad for a book I really wanted but 15.37? I think not.

put it in your want to read folder on your toolbar or favorites and check it from time to time - I find that lots of books go down in price .....

It'll drop once the paperback version comes out and currently it's $3.08 cheaper than the hardback.

I'm looking at a similar thing with the new Dresden book that comes out tomorrow. Hardback $16.52, kindle $14.27.  I'm probably going to buy both so I don't have to wait for my sons to finish reading the DTB before I get it.

But the solution is really pretty simple, if the book is priced too high for you, don't buy it or wait till the price suits you. 

You can't really expect the publishers to lose revenue by selling a significantly discounted book right when the hardback is released.

It'll also likely drop to $9.99 a week or two after it actually is released, which isn't until May in any form.

I've noticed that some of the smaller presses have higher prices.  I've looked for two books recently, published by smaller pressed, and both were over $10., but neither were in my B&N in paperback either.
