Vince Flynn Thriller Tops Amazon’s Top 100 Paid List with $14.99 eBook

Novelist Vince Flynn‘s American Assassin rocketed to the top of Amazon’s Top 100 Paid Kindle Books list despite a pricing controversy among Amazon users.

The hardcover currently sells for $15.11 on Amazon while the Kindle edition sells for $14.99. As of this writing, that controversial price point has generated nearly 60 comments as readers argue about fair eBook prices.

Joel A. Charbonnet Jr. led the resistance on Amazon: “Okay everyone, get the word out on Facebook, Twitter and all the other social networks to boycott Vince Flynn’s book “American Assassin: A Thriller” in all formats until the eBook price is reduced at least $2.00 below the Hardcover sale price. If you own any other eReader beside the Kindle get the word out to those platforms as well. If we don’t put a stop to this type of price fixing, the publishers will run rogue with their prices and we will never get it to where it should be!”
