Buying books online is better for authors, better for the economy, and better for you (OPINION PIECE)

Buying books online is better for authors, better for the economy, and better for you (OPINION PIECE) | Purchasing Books Online | Scoop.it

But say you don’t care about local cultural experiences. Say you just care about books. Well, then it’s easy: The lower the price, the more books people will buy, and the more books people buy, the more they’ll read. This is the biggest flaw in Russo’s rant. He points to several allegedly important functions that local booksellers play in fostering “literary culture”—they serve as a “gathering place” for the community, they “optimistically set up … folding chairs” at readings, they happily guide people toward books they’ll love. I’m sure all of that is important, but it’s strange that a novelist omits the most critical aspect of a vibrant book-reading culture: getting people to buy a whole heckload of books.

Publishers, your ecommerce shouldn't be an afterthought. Just because you're not Amazon doesn't mean you can't generate more book sales on your site! It's time to think about usability.

We're all talk when it comes to buying books online | Purchasing Books Online | Scoop.it

Sainsbury's, which purchased a large stake in social reading website Anobii last summer, announced last week that it would shortly be renaming the site eBooks by Sainsbury's. Leaving aside questions of capitalisation, and why it was ever called Anobii in the first place, it's another effort to solve the problem of book discovery or at least wrest it away from Amazon.
