For the German translations of the books the price makes a real difference. For example, Crucible: McCoy
ist € 19,99 as a book and down to € 9,99 as eBook. The dead tree edition of Warpath
is € 12,80, while the eBook is down to 7,99 €.
Compared to that, the English eBook prices are cheap beyond measure (e.g. Warpath
at € 4,49).
And now that I have a job besides my studies and don't need to worry about shelfspace, I can buy even more Star Trek
books. Dozens. Hundreds. All of them!
