Price vs. Cost

I found this letter from the owner of Village Books to a customer inquiring why books cost more at an independent bookstore than at Amazon to be well-reasoned and to the point. For further reading on issues of cost and value, I will point you to this lengthy compound review I wrote of Michael Pollan's In Defense of Food and Dana Thomas' Deluxe: How Luxury Lost Its Luster on The Millions.

(Thanks to Sarah for making me aware of this letter.)
