The article does suggest that Amazon may be low-balling the price to gain market share. But frankly I doubt that's all there is to it. I haven't heard of them doing it with any other book, and they don't need to do it. They already dominate bookselling. Mayhaps it has more to do with the fact that they book's position on the best-seller list is artificially inflated, and they want to carry it, but not get stuck with half a million copies they can't sell. Oh, that's right...I did say there's more, didn't I? This has been your morning chuckle. We now return you to your regular mix of conservative propaganda.
