Why does there have to be a war? If printed books are $18 (as they generally are in Australia), then an ebook should be at least half that price (in my opinion) as there is no paper, shipping, etc.
It seems to me that as ebooks become more popular, the book sellers are beginning to get greedier, which is pushing the prices of all books up, up, up. When will it stop? When people stop reading because they can’t afford to any more?
