No confusion across days. I clicked a button on one screen saying 99 cents & it went in the cart for $2.99. I even took screen shots in case I wanted to argue with Sony about it, but the time that would take probably isn't worth it for $2.

I didn't read all the post so maybe this was answered, but is this strictly an e-book? So disappointing that authors seem to be using this form of selling their books. I don't have a Kindle and have no plans to buy one, and this is maybe the third novel I would like to read.

I felt the same a year ago but surrendered when a certain popular ebook was being sold for under $2. Those prices make it worth at least getting the free apps for kindle, nook. And I still read print books.

I haven't heard this book mentioned on the board, so I thought I'd post. I am only 34% through Playing for Keeps and I have laughed more than any other book I've read all year. The heroine, Haley is a shy woman who comes out of her shell when she finally gets to know her "neighbor from hell". The hero, Jason, is a riot. A self proclaimed a-hole, he sees his neighbor as a buddy who needs help coming out of her shell, a project if you will (even calls her Grasshopper, tee hee). Jason's internal dialogue is so funny. He is so clueless, immature, and I should really hate him. But that is the magic, Matthewson has made him so endearing!

Here is the best part. It's $ .99!!!! I am not even finished and its been well worth the price.



Thank you pwm in mi. I love books like this Very Happy

A couple of years ago I thought the same thing. Then I finally gave in as there were too many books I felt I was missing and my reading world was totally turned on it's access! It's amazing how much I fell in love with ereading when I swore up and down sideways and backwards that NEVER would I join this 'new world'.

But I love SO many things about ebooks now - incredible prices, a huge variety of books on one device, the ability to read on different sized fonts are but just a few real huge pluses to having jumped in.

And to answer your question - I think you can get in print, but it's very cost prohibitive to get as a print book.
