Reader Question: How much are you willing to pay for ebook?

I'm always curious to know: How much are you willing to pay for an ebook? What's your "drop dead price" you won't go over?

Answer the question and I'll pick a poster to win a PDF Copy of my latest paranormal romance: "The Wolf's Torment."

Her favorite College Football team is USC (University of Southern California) She spent her vacation visiting Catalina Island for the 4th of July and the last book she read was Mona Risk's "Osiris' Missing Part."

Review from Readers Favorite Book Reviews
"The Wolf’s Torment has it all, witches, werewolves, a vampire, princess and prince. This is paranormal romance at its finest... I found The Wolf’s Torment to be an entertaining read. I truly cared about the characters. I look forward to reading the next book in this series."

Joy Cagil, Sr. Moderator,
"Although Wolf's Torment can be classified as a loosely historical paranormal-romance, the many underlying themes--such as the friendship dynamic, coming of age, family ties and troubles, and facing political realities, sickness, and death--give it a meaning deeper than an average genre book... This novel is not only a highly entertaining page-turner but also it boasts its author's mastery of fiction. I loved it."

I feel pretty stronly that an ebook should not cost more than a paperback copy would cost. I also feel like an ebook should be priced based on length. I have seen some seriously short books priced like full length. It makes no sense. I understand that the costs of doing business are still involved in the production of an ebook but it just isn't as high as the cost of producing physical copies. What I am hoping is that there will be more coupons and special deals as ebooks become a larger part of the market.
Thanks for the giveaway.

I have a hard time paying over mass makret price for an ebook - I will if it's for a series I'm following in ebook but I draw the line at paying over $10 for an ebook copy -I really, really have to want the book to pay that much and I can only think of two ebooks that I've paid a little over $10 for in the last 3 years.....I know there are different costs for producing ebooks and they can be just as expensive as for producing a paperback but I think it should not be more than a tradesize paperback - it's not a hardcover

I am mainly a print book read and therefore I am willing to pay more for a print copy than an ebook. I take into mind whether it's a full-length book or a novella. Sometimes it's hard to tell how large or small an ebook is because no pages are given only the file size and sometimes even that is unavailable. I'd be willing to pay a little under a paperback price, otherwise I would get a paperback if it was available.
