Hi again Joyce, Unfortunately, we're at the mercy of our inventory management on the Amazon prices. I can tell you that we're expecting to have these books available on Amazon at some point, but we don't know for sure exactly when that will be. We were hoping that Amazon would have updated the prices this morning, but that apparently is not the case. If you're hoping to buy a book via Barnes & Noble, the Nook app is available on iOS and Android devices. You don't necessarily need to have a Nook device to purchase those books.
