Refusing to buy the last book in the series I really liked
« on: April 02, 2020, 11:21:59 PM »
Ken scholes Psalms of Isaak I’ve been waiting for the price to come down on kindle since dec 2017 as the price was too high at £20.00  today I checked on kindle and it’s over £20.00 for a 400 page book. Time for me to stop waiting and move on.

I think that’s a total rip off the previous books is the series were only like £ 5.99

I won’t be reading anymore of his books why set your price for an e book that high

It’s why  I won’t read the rest of the  murderbot series (unless the price comes down in the next year) either plenty of books out there just as good and cheaper

Ooh. The last Murderbot? I’m in at most any price. But they’ve all been pretty hefty, and it has bothered me. But soooooo good!

I still don't own Four Paths Cross (the fifth Max Gladstone Craft Sequence) because they haven't published it in paperback yet and importing a hardback from the US to Australia is prohibitively expensive. (And also, it won't match the rest of the series which I have in paperback...)

I have read it, though. I borrowed it from the library.

I've had the same situation with the last book of the Glass Thorns series (Melanie Rawn). It's only been published in America and it's very expensive, even though I contacted the English publishers a couple of years ago and they said it was going to be released here.

The House of Sundering Flames was on my list on this, but it made me look again and the price has dropped so I just brought it. BOOM!
