E-Book Scam

-- by Dave Johnson

I got a Kindle because I read a lot, and the books were less expensive than books in a bookstore.

Now that companies like Borders are gone, Kindle books are $13. Thar's more than 50% over the cost of a paperback.

Um, Amazon doesn't set e-book prices; publishers do.

That took all of 15 seconds to find via Google. You really should do your research before you go off on one of your leftie spasm of anti-capitalist rage. But spasms of anti-capitalist (and anti-Semitic) rage is all you are about.
