If you love books you probably buy books. Do you think they are fairly priced?
Knowing what they cost the publisher and knowing what an author would like to get paid - yes. I don't have a problem with the purchase price of a good book. Now, textbooks??? As a professor, I think the cost of textbooks is outrageous, and is a rip-off to students.
If I want a book I don't care about cost...and I hate ebooks, I prefer hard copies...so money is no option for me.
Being honest, yes, but I don't read 3-5 books a week. People I know who read 3-5 and more books a week... swap, garage sale buy, or use the library. I swoop buy on Amazon, meaning I can wait for the read (I'm not a must have now person), so I'll buy a dozen or more lightly used in a batch for the free shipping.
