Book Price War!!

Wal-Mart and Amazon are engaged in a price war over soon to be released hardcovers. The top ten most popular are selling for about $9. Seriously. The new Stephen King novel is selling at a 74% discount before it even hits the streets. It appears that Target and Sears are also joining in...

This was mentioned in the Under the Dome thread -- great prices indeed. I pre-ordered the new Crichton and Grisham for ~$9 as well.

Any of these online stores besides Amazon that do not charge sales tax? Too bad Amazon won't get rid of the $25 minimum free shipping to match Target and Walmart.

I saw the $9 on Crichton's last book on Amazon and was both amazed and confused.
