The kindle version of Nudge is out

A number of readers have sent emails asking if and when an electronic version of Nudge will be available for Kindle readers. It’s here. Unfortunately it’s more expensive than the hardback ($20.80 versus $17.16). That does not seem to be the norm for Kindle books. For instance, the Kindle versions of Freakonomics, Blink, and Stumbling on Happiness are all cheaper than book versions. What makes Nudge different? We’ll have to find out.

Addendum: Price drop on the Kindle version. $15.44. Less than the hardcover. That price cut was faster than the iPhone’s, although not quite as deep percentage wise.

Addendum 2: Another price drop on the Kindle. Now down to $7.99.

    Here’s the trick – Amazon takes a loss on most Kindle books they sell – publishers do not sell e-books at a discount, but at the cover price, even though there is no paper, distribution, etc. involved in the product. It feels like the publishers are afraid to change to the new digital paradigm. I’d definitely be interested to learn why Nudge is selling for cover price on Kindle…I’m afraid I’m just not willing to pay cover price for something that has no cover. I’d love to read the book, but looks like I’m going to the Library for this one.😉
