I read an article that discussed how ebooks were killing the revenue of publishing companies and therefore the royalties of authors and it made sense to me. Publishers make the most money off of their newly released hardcover books. Now, I believe the margin on those is too high but that it should be higher than paperbacks and ebooks. With ereaders, the publishing companies are not selling nearly as many hardcover books anymore because people are buying the ebooks immediately after publishing.
With this in mind I am willing to pay more than 9.99 for a newer book. But, if it is already in paperback I won't spend more than that. If I am not dying to read it, I wait until the price drops a bit. But, I will never say "boycott." There are just too many books I NEED to read NOW!
