Lumix LX3 Book is Available on Amazon

A few days ago the print-on-demand paperback edition of my new book, Photographer's Guide to the Panasonic Lumix LX3, started showing up as available on  They have it listed at $24.95, the full retail price. The price may be keeping people from buying it; I believe it has sold about one copy in the five or so days it has been available; as of a few minutes ago its sales rank had dropped into the 800,000 range, which is not too good.  I have listed a copy on Amazon as a 3d-party seller for $19.95, and it hasn't sold either.  Oh, well -- the camera's replacement (the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5)  has been announced, which must be a factor.  Ironically, though, the Leica D-Lux 4 camera seems to have been officially discontinued, though the book about the D-Lux 4 is continuing to sell fairly well.  Neither book has sold any PDFs lately, though.  I have a web designer working on re-designing my home-made site, but the point of that exercise is fading, because no one is buying the books!  Maybe the redesigned site will help.  I'll try to post another update in a few days.
