Amazon and Macmillan and Internet Books

01 Feb

One the Amazon/Macmillan fracas:

Thank the Goddess for bookstores. If you needed a good reason why print books and bookstores are still viable models, you’e got it. I’d like to Borders(insertfavoritechainbookstorehere) pull a stunt like this. Bet they couldn’t.

Imagine if all we had were e-books. This sort of thing could close down a much bigger portion of the market.

This is why the only things I buy on line are computer-related.

      Well, this really isn’t the place to be saying that, but I’m glad you like the blog. 🙂

      Also, “ol” is short for “online”, per the comments that us yung’ns don’t do face-to-face interactions anymore.
