I wasn’t planning on buying – or reading, to be honest, given my non-academic status – this book, but it sounded interesting enough for me to want to take a look at the table of contents. So I looked it up on Amazon. The $93 price (marked down from $125 – hey, 30% off!) suggests mainly libraries will buy the hardcover edition.
Then I noticed that there’s a Kindle version. No printing, no binding, no covers, meant for the individual reader – that has to be cheaper, right?
And it is: only $83.97! The e-book revolution has not quite arrived.
