The complexion of this list should change significantly as retailers begin to experiment with the prices of more big-six ebooks now that Hachette and Simon & Schuster. Some titles will drop off the list because they hit a different price bracket and others will simply have strange prices. Take the first two titles on the list:
— The Black Box by Michael Connelly (Hachette): $12.74
— The Forgotten by David Baldacci (Hachette): $11.04
