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.
