I thought I would run a little informal poll here on the blog – What’s the most you’ll pay for an ebook? For me that limit is $9.99 but its arbitrary, so I’m curious, what’s your limit? If you feel like it, please leave a comment with your limit and why you chose that limit.
Edited/Added for clarification: I’ll pay more than $9.99 for textbooks. Even though I am grumpy that I can’t sell them back at the end of the semester it is worth it not to have to deal with a heavy book that wont stay open and tiny print. Plus the highlighting options are super-freaking awesome! That said I do stick to my limit for $9.99 for other books since I don’t outright own it (can’t loan it, can’t sell it, can’t donate it) I feel that it should cost less than the hardback and not $2.00 less such as Now You See It: How the Brain Science of Attention Will Transform the Way We Live, Work, and Learn and of course there are examples where the ebook is more than print, again if I owned it and was not denied my rights it would be a different story.
