While I can completely agree that Amazon has been acting the bully, I have to join the "$15 for an ebook????" crowd. I suppose it's because I think of ebooks as a disposable product, rather than the permanent purchase of ink and paper books. When I buy a paper book I know that, barring fire, flood and teething toddler, I will always have that book for as long as I want to own it. I just don't feel like I have that assurance with an ebook. I see it as another version of Kay in Men in Black's "I'm going to have to buy The White Album again." Every time there's a technology shift, I'd be buying the same bloody books over and over. So I'm not willing to put the kind of money into an ebook that I'm going to spend on paper. I would only put $15 into a reference book that I knew I was going to use a lot and wanted fast searching capability. For fiction, not a chance.
