Save Money and Buy Electronic Books for Your Personal Collection

Gooden, Dwight, and Ellis Henican. Doc: A Memoir. Boston, MA: New Harvest, 2013. Print.

Over the last few years I have purchased most of my personal books for the Amazon Kindle.  There is some savings over the print version, but today I really struck a bargain when I purchased the newly published autobiography of Dwight Gooden.  The list price for the print book is $27.00 while Amazon sells it for $16.20.  The cost of the e-book for the Kindle is $5.99 which is a tremendous savings.

When I purchase books for the library the price of the print and electronic book is essentially the same.  The intellectual effort in producing any book is essentially the same.  The cost of the paper, printing and binding is minimal.
