PN: The price point would remain the same and the current Kindle Fire would be reduced to $149. The rumors regarding Kindle Fire 2 include higher resolution and a camera.
PN: I think it is great to encourage reading but increased reading =/ decreased criminal intent.
PN: The split would spin off the film/entertainment with the publishing/newspaper portions. For some reason, I always thought it was CBS that would shed Simon & Schuster first. News Corp owns, among other things, HarperCollins, the parent of Avon.
PN: Andrew Zack’s post is about how the DOJ lawsuit is wrong because Agency pricing hasn’t brought about higher prices, but I thought it was interesting to look at the revenue split from each retailer along with Zack’s admission that publishing an ebook is harder than he had originally envisioned.
PN: I thought this was fun but I didn’t understand why the author didn’t know how to pronounce her own words. Or am I misunderstanding her post?
PN: The BookPushers sought recommendations for post apocalyptic romances and generated a wonderful list. The giveaway deadline has passed but the list lives on.
