Book Musings: When is an ebook too expensive?

I was surfing around Goodreads the other day and found an Asian-inspired YA novel that I really want to read. I went to download it onto my Nook . . . and saw the list price was $13.99. And when I saw the price, I decided not to buy it. It just seemed too expensive to me.

I'll be the first to admit I have a tendency to be tight-fisted. I will buy any ebook under $5 without a second thought. I don't stress if the book ends up in my DNF pile since I got the book at a good price. Plus, it's usually indie authors who sell books for under $5, and I like to support indies. I am a bit more selective of titles between $6 - $10. At this price, I generally only buy books that come highly recommended from book bloggers. And, as you can see, once an ebook goes over $10, I don't buy it at all.

So I am wondering what the rest of you think? Have you ever decided not to purchase an ebook because you felt it was too expensive? What do you think is a reasonable price for an ebook? Do you look for books that fall within a certain price range? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.
