boy, this law suit is taking forever to resolve! i finally got an update on our ebook credits, this time from B&N. the message from B&N verifies that i am eligible for a partial refund for ebooks i have purchased in the past. no mention of the amount of my credit, or when i will receive it. but now i have an i.d. number, and am told that further info will be forthcoming soon.
i haven't heard another word about book credits from amazon, since 2011.
one other thing: remember how ebook prices were reduced shortly after news about the about publisher overpricing of ebooks became public, in early 2012? books that had been priced at $12 dipped back under ten dollars again? well, since then, i've seen the biggest price hikes ever on ebooks. a sizable portion of new releases are being priced at $14.99. what's up with that? will there be another lengthy law suit that will take three more years to resolve?
