    Regarding dynamic pricing, that would be very hard to do in the print world. The supply chain for books – from publisher to distributor to bookstore and then back – is very long. Any time a publisher raises or lowers the price of a book, they must either accept returns of the books at the present price so that the distributor or reseller can then reorder at the new price, or the publisher must give credits or add to invoices based on the price of the book when it was ordered and not when it is paid for 90 to 180 days later. When distributors and resellers have years to return a book, keeping track of pricing can become a problem, too.

    An argument for doing away with returns?
