One of the arguments I've heard for why ebooks are so expensive is to keep the printed version's perceived value high. If ebooks are 1/3 the price of the printed version, given time no one will put value on the printed version and sales will drop. Because of the volume, printing books is relatively cheap. It (allegedly) adds little or nothing to the final cost of the book but there are lots of middle-men that get profit from it. None of those people want the printed book industry to go away which is why the prices are such a mess.
