Yes Please Paperback is Cheaper than the e-book


Yes Please by Amy Poehler has been a perennial New York Times Bestseller since it initially debuted October of 2014. The title just became available in paperback this week and it is retailing for $9.87 at Barnes and Noble and $9.53 at Amazon. The biggest concern about the paperback edition is that it is more affordable than the e-book.

Barnes and Noble is selling the e-book edition of Yes Please for $11.99, Amazon $10.43, Kobo $11.99, iBooks $11.99 or directly from the publisher HaperCollins for $14.99.

Every major online retailer is selling the digital edition for a higher price than the paperback.  This has become a major trend over  the last calendar year as all of the major publishers have signed new e-book contracts with the likes of Amazon, Apple, B&N, Kobo and Gooogle. The publishers now are chiefly responsible for dictating the digital price and the wholesale concept that Amazon pioneered is going the way of the Dodo Bird.

Suffice to say, if you have yet to read Yes Please by Amy Poehler I recommend purchasing the paperback edition, as it is way cheaper than the e-book.
