10 bucks a chapter? What a ripoff!

I noticed something the other day while I was working on a post. Ebooks.com have started selling some titles by the chapter (I don’t think this was an option the last time I shopped there).

I have no problem with selling by the chapter; it’s the prices that have me pissed. They’re selling the chapters of one ebook I own  for anywhere between $5.59 and $10.34. The whole ebook only costs $16!

    That’s got to be some sort of weird algorithm error, those prices are very strange. If not, total rip-off! Maybe the book’s priced for course-packs?

    OMG – I never cease to be amazed at how people get greedy. Let’s hope it’s an error in the site, not in the author’s thinking.
