What is the right price for ebooks? It is a question that has been debated for more than a decade and it has become much more active with the rise of the legion of self-publishing writers.

Here, the venerable Columbia Journalism Review suggests another point to consider: they should be priced at a level to allow the next ebook to be created. If this price is more than the buyer will pay, there will be no money for a new book will be created.

An interesting read and a different view than the simple "what the market will bear."

The "sweet spot" for me is $5. I wouldn't feel like I was being ripped off and yet I would feel that the author is getting his/her due. I don't know if that is the "right" number, but it feels right to me.
