The ebook edition of Donna Tartt's 2013 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Goldfinch costs $12.99.

Canada's librarians are mad as wet hens over what they say is unfair pricing.
They're gearing up for a literary brannigan aimed at getting publishers to dial back these price barriers between people and the books they love.
"It is quite shocking when people realize how much libraries are paying for ebooks," says Roxanne Toth-Rissanen, chief executive officer and director of public libraries at the Sault Ste. Marie Public Library.
"In many cases these copies of ebooks that we pay dearly for do not belong outright to the community a public library serves," Toth-Rissanen says.
"In many instances what we are paying for is the use of an ebook for a certain amount of time. One year is often the term or we have a limited number of uses.
"So we pay over $100 for an ebook title that you could order for at most $15 or $20 and then the library can only loan that book for our 12 times and then we have to purchase another copy of the ebook and loan it out for another 12 times.
"So in essence we are having to use more of our financial resources to be able to make this service available to our community and in the end we still do not own the title."
