Psst, Kindle-owners - how do you feel about this Amazon-Macmillan fight?

The New York Times is reporting that Amazon has delisted all Macmillan titles because the publisher requested they raise the Kindle prices to $15. Macmillan includes the Tor, St. Martin's,
and Henry Holt imprints, amongst others...

What I want to know, dear Kindle owners, has Amazon yanked or delisted the Macmillan titles you already have on your Kindles? How far does this spat go?

Read Street picked this up too, as did Tobias Buckell

This is interesting news I don't own a kindle but I do own a iPod. Personally I wouldn't want to pay 15 bucks for something that I didn't have a hardcopy of. That's almost the price of a real book
