I just read about this book, Barbara The Slut And Other Stories on Gawker and they said it was a great book.
So I clicked over to Amazon, where I saw that the book is being sold, in hardcover, for $24.85 on Amazon.
That’s just the book. Shipping is extra.
$24.85 for a book.
Ever wonder why there are so many articles extolling the virtues of “real” books?
$24.85 for a book that cost $3.50 to get to you.
PS Author’s generally get a higher payout of hardcover and paperback sales than electronic versions of books so the next time you read an essay from Stephen King on how great “real” books are keep in mind that he’s already worth $400,000,000.
Books should cost $9.99.
