Baen to raise price of Webscriptions

Toni Weisskopf, the Publisher at Baen Books, recently posted this bit of news on Baen's Webscription ebookstore. (Yes, the monthly ebook deal is the same name as the ebookstore.)

Hi Webscription Customers,

I’m writing to announce a price increase in the normal monthly Webscription price. We will continue to guarantee four titles and deliver six or seven, but for the first time in nine years we will be increasing the price—but only by three bucks. Starting with the April 2011 titles the price will be $18/month.

It's still the best deal around for ebooks. For $18, the monthly webscription gives you 4 to 6 ebooks, in multiple formats, DRM free.

You can also buy the ebooks separately, if you like. But I still like to buy the webscritions for reasons of serendipity. I've discovered new authors that way.

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."
