I recently purchased a book for my Kindle and I must say, I really like it so far. It's a book that is being sold in various parts (only 2 parts have been released so far). I bought both parts, which were relatively short, and I finished reading them in less than a day. However, I have suddenly found myself in an unfortunate monetary predicament, seeing as how my car is having problems and will likely cost several hundred dollars to repair. I need as much money as possible in order to scrape by.
Amazon has a policy where you can immediately return Kindle books within 5 days of purchasing them and receive a full refund. I have thus decided to return the two books (or rather, parts of a book) for my money back, even though I already read them.
Normally I would have no qualms about doing this, had it been a famous and/or rich author. However, the book is by an independent author and this is her first book ever, so I am effectively taking money away from a "starving author," and one who I actually really like so far. I should also note that I have every intention of buying her book again when I have the money.
Do you guys think that what I did is understandable or was it fundamentally wrong? Would you guys have done the same thing in my situation?
