Food for Thought


The Literary Saloon, the literary blog at The Complete Review, brings today,1 June 2012 – Friday, a post The Nation on Amazon.com, that is worth reading for those interested in the future of the publishing industry. The article refers us to three articles: How Germany Keeps Amazon at Bay and Literary Culture Alive by Michael Naumann, The Amazon Effect by Steve Wasserman and Search Gets Lost by Anthony Grafton.

  1. Thanks for these links, Jose Ignacio, I will read these when I have time as I take a (detached) interest in these matters. I work in publishing but of scientific journals/articles – we have our challenges but they are different from book publishing, eg we don’t have this geographical restriction aspect to rights management which is a blessing for all.
