AmazonBarnes & Noble and Apple are running $4 sale on David Foster Wallace‘s masterpiece, Infinite Jest.

As of this 5:23 p.m. ET writing, the same book currently costs $8.89 on Google Play and $9.99 on Kobo. This week, Hachette dropped the agency model for eBook pricing, allowing digital book marketplaces to price books as they wish. Will we see eBook price wars without these price restrictions?
