Why Are App Store Books so Expensive?

So Shepard was telling me about this book today I Sold Andy Warhol (Too Soon), and we got talking about a great movie that I saw recently The Art of the Steal (2009), anyways blah blah blah. So, he tells me about this book and it sounds interesting, So im sold. I go to Amazon, see how much it is $17.96, not to bad, I need to get some other books anyways, so I will get free shipping with my order. Then I think, Well shit why don’t I get it from the Apple Store, $18.99! Really? Thats the cost it would be if i had to pay for shipping. And then Amazon has it the Kindle Edition for only $9.99, I ended up doing that.

Oh and also, the book cover looks awful. Why didn’t they use the real book cover.

No fees on Coinstar with Gift Cerificate

I don’t know exactly how long it too us to fill up the bottle. It was full, so we had to take it to get emptied and get some cash in exchange, hopefully. Between Erin and I, we have access to about five banks. None of which have a coin counting machine that I have googled about.

So I googled coinstar to learn how to maybe hack it so I could get cash without paying there percentage. I learned that you don’t have to pay a fee when you get your change for gift cards from certain places. I do enough shopping at Amazon where it worked out great.

Below is what we got, Worked out great.

Here is the damage:
Dollars: 7
Half Dollars: 0
Quarters: 493
Dimes: 1085
Nickels: 631
Pennies: 2771

I think with this I am going to buy a Drobo.

I forgot the international change that came out of it!
