Amazon Relents! *happy dance*

Here's the update... Amazon has relented in the scuffle with Macmillan. I'm SO very happy. Now customers can decide with their spending dollars whether or not they like the prices in the model.

Yaaaay!

Okay, I gotta get back to work. :-) Take care!

yay, that's how it should be. the customers will in the end decide the price. I have no problems with publishers experimenting with pricing, I can understand why $9.99 for every ebook no matter what can not be sustainable in the end.

I'm with you, Rebecca. I figure the public's spending will eventually determine the price and that's how it should be. My brother reminded me last night of the iTunes/Metallica individual song pricing issue a while back (back when iTunes tried 99cents across the board for all songs--now they have different prices, too).

So I'm celebrating today (although the books aren't back up for sale officially yet).

Have a great Monday!

Woot! It makes sense to let the customer decide. I've had instances where I thought the price justified the product and other times not so much.

This is a huge relief I'm sure for you. (Hugs)Indigo

Yay! Though I'd still buy 13 to Life either way. But I'm sure you just got back some customers so good news! :D
