One of the reasons I haven't started buying e-books is because I don't feel you get a good deal on them. You can't sell it at a yard-sale and you can't buy a used one. I don't often see good discounts on them. It was no surprise to me to hear there was price fixing going on.
I have a nook mostly for free e-books and library books, but I am mostly a paper guy. I am getting rid of a lot of my books because they are taking up space and I am using the library more. Star Trek books often don't come to my library for a long time if ever, so they are the one type of book I often buy these days.
