Ebooks: What’s Your Price Cap?
Hello readers, writers, and authors,
This post is something I’ve been thinking of doing for a while, and I finally got the nerve and time to write it out.
My question is this. What’s your price cap for Ebooks?
I’m not the biggest fan of e-reading. I love the feel of a physical book in my hand, always have, always will. But desperate times call for desperate measures, and due to these strange and uncertain times, I bought a Kindle about a month or so ago.
My mentality in buying a Kindle was that I would be able to save money and purchase some great reads in the process that I’ve had on my TBR for quite some time.
However, as I searched the scores of books I was interested in reading (I seriously need help at this point, save me!), I saw something puzzling that I hadn’t really considered before.
Ebooks aren’t necessarily cheap. In fact, some are actually more expensive than their physical counterparts. So, back to the question at hand.
How much are you willing to pay for an ebook?
For me, anything priced more than $5 makes me question whether a purchase is worth it or not. Despite the perks of having an ebook, it simply doesn’t justify the cost for not having a physical copy.
I did find this article that tries to spell out why ebooks can be more expensive, but to be honest it just feels like a bunch of excuses to me.
In the end, I was still able to find some cheap ebooks on my list, but for the others on my list I may have to wait for my local library to open back up at the end of May.
So what do you think? How much is too much for an ebook?
