Wal-Mart and Amazon.com trade price cuts on books.
Assocaited press says that Amazona and Walmart.com are in a "full gledged price war." This is good for readers. Walmart is cutting prices on highly anticipated hardback books to $9. When Walmart announced that it would be selling Dean Koontz' new novel "Breathless" and King's "Under The Dome" for $10 (each!) -- Amazon soon followed. Then the price went down to $9. WOW!.
That's almost the price Barnes and Novel sells them for at the discount rack -- the cheap once best sellers that now have the big black mark at the bottom..
