11. I just found this out. That's even worse than last time.

Seriously? That seems a bit excessive since the hardback is January 9th of 2013.

I'm one of those readers who can't take a large tome around with me all day. I buy an ebook to carry around with me, and a hardback to place in my bookcase of the major authors I follow. In this case I'll be left with no reason to purchase the ebook. How is that a good marketing idea on Tor's part?

With the last book they had a month delay for the ebook. I waited until the ebook came out and bought both. However, lots of pirated copies of the ebook were all over the web by then. I just waited out of respect for Jordan and the years he'd invested into the series before he passed.

I can't help but think this isn't the best approach for Tor to be taking. It just seems to be begging people to chose either one or the other, rather than both.
