Alright. Why has the price of ebooks in the Kindle store (suddenly?) risen so dramatically? Will this trend reverse?

A book I wanted to download from Amazon and read on my Kindle app has risen from $12 to $18 over the course of a week. Angry, I started looking for some alternate reads and I can see that all the ones I want seem to be between $14 and $20! Not very long ago, I remember that Kindle books were generally $9.99. What's going on? Are the prices going to stay high like this?
