NOTHING COSTS MORE THAN IT USED TO:

Review: 5 e-book readers for less than $175 (Peter Svensson, 6/17/11, Associated Press)

When Amazon.com's ground-breaking Kindle e-book reader came out in 2007, it cost $399. Now, some e-readers, including the most recent Kindle entry, can be had for just north of $100.

At the price of five or so hardcover books, it's close to impulse-buy territory for many people. And if you give in to your desires, what do you get? Our test of five e-readers priced from $114 to $164 finds that cheap, in most cases, means good value.


The Chevy Volt will, likewise, be $15k in four years.
