$10 for roylties for something I can buy a hard copy of for less?

I bought a copy of software at Walmart with the NIV for $10 or so... Was
someone selling at a loss to get their software noticed, or as a ministtry.

How when I recently got a copy for the cost of a box of cereal, and ate a
box of cereal in the deal...

Obviously Zondervan has some situations where they will lower the price...
