Submission + - Amazon Gets Blow-back from Kindle Sales at Small Shops Plan (bbc.co.uk)

Rambo Tribble writes: No sooner had Amazon revealed their plan to offer independent book shops the Kindle for re-sale, along with a kick-back on e-book purchases, than the fur began to fly. It appears the shops view the plan as Amazon-assisted suicide. Given the apparent terms of the deal, it looks like they may have a point. Amazon may well have done themselves more harm than good with this ploy.
