Overzeetop writes: Simon and Schuster and Hachette have recently announced that they will delay e-book releases by up to 4 months. This comes on the heels of literary agent recommending such a plan just days prior. This seems like a potential stumbling block for people who are considering picking up an e-reader this holiday season. Will Amazon or Barns and Noble consider playing hardball with the publishers to get the electronic versions released earlier?
