Maybe I’ve been under a rock lately, but I was floored to see that the book (that I already pre-ordered for my Kindle) is no longer available! Apparently Penguin and Amazon can’t reach an agreement on eBook pricing leading to no new Penguin books in Kindle format being released as of April 1.
The hardback version of Dead in the Family is only $9.99 if you pre-order is right now… however the eBook version (that is still showing up in my Open Orders…) was $10.80. I gotta say that I will not be pleased if I’m charged more for a digital copy of a book than what the hardback costs. (Which reminds me… have you read Jennifer’s Were We Actually Promised Cheap eBooks? post because you should!).
I received an email from Amazon letting me know that my pre-ordered Kindle version of Dead in the Family was canceled and is not set to release on May 4th. I have reserved a hardback at my local B&N and I’m not too happy with how all this is working out (although I would probably have wanted the paperback for my shelf at some point, I was not planning on buying the hardback).
Have you heard anything about this?
I hope it is resolved before May 4!!
