Harlequin Escape

In partnership with the ABA, Kobo has developed a unique program designed for independent booksellers and their customers. Booksellers will be able to offer a total experience for their customers including a full line of eReaders, eReading accessories, and ebooks from Kobo’s catalog of nearly 3 million titles. ABA members will share in the revenue on every sale. The program includes valuable training, in-store merchandising, marketing, sales, and logistics solutions to help independents be successful. ABA members will also be able to offer ebooks directly to their customers online. Kobo expects to launch with the first 400 bookstores this fall.

    I have a preorder in for the Moleskine Evernote notebook and I’m counting the weeks until it ships. The original plan was to save it for my Christmas stocking, but I don’t think that’s going to happen.

    From what I heard about the Amazon deal, their books will be significantly less expensive at their own site. Some ebooks as much as a $5.00+ difference. I think they’re it’s pretty clear why they’re doing this and my thought is, B&N still won’t carry the print books.
