US$2.99, not $1.99 (at Amazon.com)
While your other half might be perusing the latest bonk buster on the beach this summer, you might want something that's not going to leave you wriggling with embarrassment and wishing you’d packed a bigger towel.

"Just pony up £2.01/ $1.99"
Exchange rate scam?
Maybe you need to pull apart some new exchange rates, I make $1.99 = £1.27, your rate looks like it's 1985.

Paid for the ePub. It arrived quickly in email. Copied it to my Kobo Vox. Imported it. Gets an error on opening. Sigh. Tried again. Same. I'll have to try running the book through Calibre to see if that helps. I chose the ePub for my VOX since it has a colour display, instead of the Kindle version - my Kindle is B&W.
Running the book through Calibre did indeed fix it, although it shows up twice on the bookshelf, and it breaks if I try to delete one. Oh well - could be some setting in Calibre that I haven't looked at.
While experimenting, I turned on the Kobo Vox's Wi-Fi to see if some DRM thing required authentication. An update was available. I let it do its thing. With this new update, Kobo no longer has their own App Store - you now get "Google Play", and have to have a Google account to get apps, etc. I think on the whole this is a good thing - having their own store must have been a drain on their resources. However, this may mean they are getting out of the Android "tablet" business.
