Here are a few stories to read this Monday morning.
- Amazon is going to shut down the Kindle store in China – next June. (Given how much can change in a year, I would not give this much attention.)
- Books continue to get made into movies, but the ownership of the production companies has changed.
- There’s a new Nook.
- John Wilker questions whether indie authors should invest time in indie bookstores.
- The Millions blog has just discovered the idea of books as decoration, and they do not approve.
- Amazon is dropping support for the on-device bookstore from several really old Kindle models. (Given how bad the book buying experience is on a Kindle, I don’t see a downside.)
- The New Statesman has discovered that bookstores are doing okay in the age of Amazon.
P.S. Sorry for missing last week, folks. I was busy with an SF con over the Memorial Day weekend.
