Anybody else notice the Kindle version of Ken Follett's Fall of Giants is more than the HB version?  ($19.39 hardback vs $19.99 kindle)  Another sad thing about it is it has really messed the Amazon ratings.  Out of 200 ratings 136 are 1 star.  What are the publishers thinking?!

I haven't read through the reviews, but I did notice the Kindle Kops seemed to be quite upset over it. It happens a lot at Amazon, they are ticked at a higher kindle price and write one star reviews to complain about the price. Grrrrr.

I noticed it to. I like the phrase kindle kops. I look at the the hardback reviews for my selections then just buy it on kindle.

I know...and it ticks me off!  I just unpacked a box containing two copies of the hardcover..those puppies are HEAVY!  That's one of the reasons I love my Kindle; I have lots of doorstoppers on it.  There is no way I would pay that much; I'm hoping the price comes down soon.  Grrr
