Patrick, your point about markups and huge profit margins makes sense, it's true,but not in the book industry, which aside from textbooks, self-help books and _a few_ fiction blockbusters, doesn't make a lot of money. You can make a lot more money in cosmetics, clothing and countless other commodities, but books, especially good books, aren't a goldmine.

And yes,let's get back to hardboiled and noir, at whatever price... This was a good discussion but we can't regulate prices from here.
