Virtual Inflation

Amy's a big Kindle reader, and with the iPhone app, I can share her library. A book we both were interested in, Good Book, by Slate's David Plotz, was a prime candidate to add to the library. Shockingly, when she went to get it, it was priced nearly 30% higher than almost all other Kindle books! What's up with that?

Looks like Kindle users have found a plethora of examples, and a bunch are now banding together to protest this. Using the Amazon tagging function, they are tagging all of these overprices books with a "9.99 Boycott" tag. Viva la virtual revolucion!
