My friends at Novel Rocket are taking a poll on how much you’re willing to pay for an e-book. Would love to have you participate. Here’s their introduction to the poll:
As we wait to see how the law handles the charges that Apple and five publishers met to fix e-book prices, I’ve found myself surprised at the price point I’ve seen thrown around in the news. I mean, there’s only so much I’ll pay for “air” before I’d rather upgrade to a physical copy of the book. It’s left me wondering what’s the highest price people are willing to pay for an e-book. They say in real estate the house is worth whatever someone will pay–and the same is true for us.

Those of you with e-readers, what’s the highest you’ve paid to date for an e-book?
Michael Ehret, for Writing on the Fine Line
I have a strange relationship with my e-reader. While I love having books on it that I can read when I’m out and about, or traveling without carrying a bunch of books, I’ve found for review purposes, I do better with a hard copy. I’ve told many authors to go ahead and send the e-version if they’ve asked for an endorsement, but those then to get “lost” in the shuffle on my iPad. An ARC sits on my bedside table and glares at me until I read it. In the e-reader, it goes to sleep, so it can be ignored.
But, as I get ready for the ACFW conference, I’m checking to see what books I have downloaded for my reading pleasure on the plane and in the hotel room. I never can figure out those TV sets in hotels. They never have the channels I want, and if I’m not careful they pull up a movie that I didn’t want to see.
I’m looking forward to having an e-reader one of these days … but I’ll want one I can make notes in. The front desk can take care of those accidental movie views if you ask. That’s what I always do.
