There's an interesting discussion about the price (not to be confused with the cost) of e-books on two blogs:
- TeleRead: Bring the E-Books Home, "Calculating a fair price for e-books."
- Galleycat, "Expert Explains Why E-Books Are so Expensive."
As an avid reader but not a fan of reading on a screen, high cost would be a barrier to my purchasing e-books on a regular basis. I prefer paper. What do you think?
