E-reads’ new business plan – corporate self immolation

I've just finished reading the posts of Jeffrey Carver, a SF author I know. He's reporting that the $9 list price that E-reads set for his digital backlist was not a mistake. No, $9 is now E-reads' standard price. Someone  must have gone bugshit wacko. There's no reasonable explanation for this.

I don't know about you, but I always think of E-reads in relation to backlists. There's no way in hell I'll pay $9 for a 10+ year old ebook.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Carver says they’re still $6 at Webscriptions.
    Which is the only place I’ve ever bought eReads titles.
    Interesting time to be running an experiment like this, though.
