Australian book prices have long caused disputes and sent book buyers looking for bargains on the internet. The same thing now seems to be happening to ebooks.
Australian publishers Allen & Unwin have published the winning book in The Australian/Vogel competition as an ebook. You can buy the paperback from an Australian bookseller for $27.99 or the ebook for $19.59. Or you can buy it from Amazon Kindle for $9.99 US.
Same story for another recently published Allen & Unwin book, The Simple Death by Michael Duffy. The paperback in Australia is $29.99 and the ebook is $25.49, while the Amazon Kindle price is $9.99 US.
Disclosure: I bought a copy of The Simple Death from Kindle, and enjoyed it.
