Seriously, J.K. Rowling?

So I loved the Harry Potter books, and I was really excited when I heard J. K. Rowling was writing a book for adults.  That is, I was excited until I saw that the hardcover retail price is THIRTY-FIVE DOLLARS!  (Amazon is offering it for $21 right now.)

Seriously?  J. K. Rowling, you're richer than God.  You're the last writer on earth who needs to be charging $35 a book.  And don't tell me that the publisher picked the price.  You're a big enough name that your publisher will do whatever you ask.

So you know what?  I'm going to wait until the paperback comes out, and the hard-cover version of your book gets remaindered.  THEN I'll buy it for $5, and you won't get a royalty off my sale.

So there.
