The Art of Fielding is a great novel about a college baseball player. Incredible novel, not so much focusing on the baseball aspect, just a great story and writing.

That is NOT my experience in shopping for ebooks.

Chosen at random from my recommendations on amazon.com:

Breathless, same price as paperback

Full Dark, No Stars, Same price as paperback

Daniel X, -$1 from hardcover

The Art of Fielding: A Novel, +$1.88 over paperback

Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever. = to hardcover

The Heroes of Olympus, Book Two: The Son of Neptune, -$1.41 over hardcover

Hell House, -$0.18 over paperback

Fight Club, -$2.57 over paperback

Prices are only slightly lower, if at all over physical books. Obviously this is a small sample, but whenever I go looking it is typically what I find.

Your overhead arguments are mostly false as well:

  • marketing cost are equal for ebook vs physical

  • royalties are equal for ebook vs physical

  • conversion? The books are all edited electronically already and it only needs to be done once

  • Data center storage is vastly less expensive than warehousing and retail shelf space space needed for physical books which should result in lower price

  • you only need 1 secure digital copy, vs thousands of physical books which should result in lower price which should result in lower price

  • ebooks need never be shipped which should result in lower price

  • publishers will never overprint ebooks which should result in lower price

I just read The Art of Fielding by Chad Harbach, and I really enjoyed it. It's about a baseball team at a small midwestern college. A couple of the characters are gay, and all of the characters are fascinating.
