Comment to 'So-called “reading tax” on ebooks is scrapped in UK budget'
  • Let's see if it actually results in price changes. Currently - at least on Amazon - many ebooks seem to be priced either just above or just below the paperback equivalent; there is no clear "20%" factor involved. Will they become 16% cheaper from December? I have my doubts.

    I suspect it's more likely that between Amazon and the publishers, greater profits will be retained.

    As to buying more books, isn't my backlog of as-yet-unread books big enough already?

    • That was precisely my (cynical and personal) reaction! 99p is such a nice round number, I don't think we'll see any ebooks suddenly on sale for 70p...
