I have read many books with my Kindle, the large DX e-paper version.
I have read so many out of copyright books, I still don't know what to do with myself. They continue in sites like Project Gutenberg, or any decent search engine with terms found through Wikipedia.
My collection is 100% legit, 100% copyright free in my county, and 100% better than whatever I'm missing out on.
I'm that asshole, the guy who thinks he's the representative, but in reality is the outlier, the person who has no business posting because it does not affect him/her.
But Amazon won a case against Big Ink. They are suddenly the bad guy?
Oh yes, this report was funded by big ink. I invite you to search for DAVID STREITFELD, "He won a 2012 "Best in Business" award from the Society of American Business Editors and Writers for his New York Times stories on fake online reviews." 2012, who the shit gave credence to reviews last year? Calling Rick Romero, who gives a shit about online reviews?
"Streitfeld was one of a team of New York Times reporters who won the 2013 Pulitzer Prize for Explanatory Reporting," - Rick Romero
Sorry, that was Wikipedia, not Romero, but WTF does that mean?
Amazon will sell what you will buy. At the price you will pay. That's capitalism. Are the United States not a capitalistic enterprise? If not, maybe Socialist? Maybe something else?
Pricing is proprietary information. That's capitalistic rhetoric.
One of the few publishers willing to speak his mind about Amazon is Dennis Loy Johnson, proprietor of the Melville House, one of the most interesting new presses since its founding in 2001. Melville had an immediate hit last month with a rediscovered article by James Agee, âoeCotton Tenants.â But as sales slow in the days since publication, Amazon is charging more for it.
Holy shit batman. Someone REPRINTS an article, discovers sales are slow, and INCREASES the price? What the fuck would you do? Put your fist in your Aunt Bea? Hell no, you would charge market price, just like AMAZON FUCKING DID.
The price-tracking site camelcamelcamel shows âoeCotton Tenants,â which lists for $24.95, moving from $16 on Amazon shortly after publication to $19.79 last week before falling back slightly to the current $19.23. If you were a few weeks late getting the news about âoeCotton Tenants,â you paid 20 percent more
20 PERCENT, thati's Nazi pricing. Oh, $19, which I round up to $20, up to $24.95, which I round down to $20? That's a savings of, wait,
Oh, cheaper than the bookstore by a price of WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU CHARGE FOR SOMETHING THAT IS OUT OF PRINT?
God dammit, I could have printed 30 novels instead of replying to you.
