Booktopia - Most Ridiculous Ebook Prices

Here is a review I posted in ProductReview

When I am contemplating buying an ebook, which is the only way I buy a book, various sellers are checked for availability and prices.  Time and again Booktopia have the most outrageous and absolutely ridiculous prices.  I would like to support an Australian bookseller but the prices are often contemptible. Here are the two recent examples.
Black Flags: The Rise of Isis by Joby Warrick Google, Apple iBooks, Amazon and Kobo all $10.99 Booktopia $44.75
Wasted  by Elspeth Muir Google $15.80, Apple iBooks $17.99, Amazon $13.83 and Kobo $21.95.  Booktopia $44.25
