    iBookstore Pricing Leaked: Cheaper than Expected

    According to at least one source, pricing of e-books sold through
    Apple’s iBookstore will not be as expensive as we were initially led to
    believe. Many sources put the original price of bestsellers between $12
    and $14, as compared to the $9.99 sweet spot offered by Amazon, which
    was then jeopardized as publishers rushed to work out new arrangements
    following the iPad announcement.
    A new report by AppAdvice.com’s Alexander Vaughn suggests that reports
    of higher pricing may have been greatly exaggerated. Vaughn was lucky
    enough to be privy to a “not-so-NDA-complying preview†of the
    iBookstore in action, and he notes that a significant portion of the
    New York Times’ bestseller list are actually offered at $9.99.
