I couldn't believe how many books out there that are less than 30 pages, yet are $3-4. What???? I was so close to buying some without knowing the length of the book because I didn't know there are books that short published. I'm used to the 200pgs and more books! Thank goodness for helpful reviewers who mention that important fact! It cannot be that expensive to publish or write that short of a book. Am I prejudiced against extra short length books and am wrong because they can be good and worth the price?

I almost bought a $5 Kindle title the other day until I realized it was under 100 pages. I don't think so!

I don't think there's any rhyme or reason to it that can be explained. I think they're still feeling their way around and getting an idea on how much people will pay.
