    B&N needs to be a little more competitive with pricing

    Amazon is selling the same item for the kindle for $19.00. It shouldn't cost me $35.00 to get the same book. Why do the nook ebooks cost so much more. I always find that I have to pay more then my friends who have kindles. Very upsetting!
