It turns out that you can now get this blog on your Kindle e-book for only $1.99 a month. Other items that Amazon.com sells aren't quite as cheap. I stumbled across a textbook today that actually sells for $7,790. This is Nuclear Energy, by many contributors.

Here's the product description:

The three volumes VIII/3A, B, C of Energy Technologies should primarily serve scientists, engineers, and students to gain information on physical, chemical, and technical properties of all technologies to provide, convert, distribute, store, and finally use energy. They are supplemented with economic background information and with specific concepts, to allow the reader a proper comparison of different energy technologies. In this way these volumes on energy technologies should help human society pave the way towards sufficient and environmentally safe provision and use of energy. The various contributions have been written by experts from all around the globe working in universities, public research institutions, and private industrial companies.

One of the targets is students, but how many students can afford a book that costs $7,790?

On the bright side, you definitely qualify for free shipping if you buy this book. Or you could save 20%, or $1558, if you decide to read Nuclear Energy on your Kindle instead of getting a printed copy. At least it's not as bad as Mrs. Skagg's Husbands, which you can't get for anything less than $7.6 million. That's not available for the Kindle yet, though.
