  • Borders Reduces E-reader to $99
    And there you have it. An ereader below $100. Oh, wow, the world is still turning.
  • Random House’s Strong Half-Year Results Driven By ‘Dragon Tattoo’ Sales
    Stieg Larsson, who will not likely be producing more books, drives huge dollars to Random House. His ebook sales are phenomenal. Which leads to the question: does the lack of an iBookstore agreement hurt RH in any way?
  • A Moment of Jen
    From Jennifer Weiner: Instead of asking which books and which authors deserve the Times’ coverage, maybe we should think about what kind of book review section readers deserve. Not a crazy idea at all.

  • RH and Wylie Come to Terms; Random ‘Wins’
    Always worry about headlines that include wins. In this case, one wonders how much it cost Random House to win (presumably higher royalties than they’d been willing to give, possibly some sort of cash consideration). And one wonders how this impacts those who previously purchased the books. Will they be allowed to keep them? Will there be a transfer of publisher, making it invisible to the consumer. And, of course, one wonders which books were impacted by this deal.
  • Nook Drives 21% Increase in Revenue for Barnes Noble
    Barnes and Noble also claiming an overall 20% of entire ebook market. Good to see their digital numbers exceeding expectations.

  • E-reading: Revolution in the making or fading fad?
    This article makes no sense. The headline implies one thing, the body of the article another, the entire premise yet another. Sigh.
  • June e-Book Sales Up 119%
    For those keeping track.
  • Jonathan Franzen Stars in Special Rumpus Bookclub
    While this *seems* like an awesome idea, it’s really alienating for all those who a) don’t have time to shop their local indie (i.e., people with jobs, kids, or other commitments), b) people who don’t have local bookstores available, and c) library users. Heck, even digi-book readers are largely left out, since the ABA’s program is less-than-robust.
