Selling books and, well, not selling books

Shelf Awareness starts the new year off with a bang today- filling their daily missive with updates from the publishing world.

I looked through it today due to the catchy tag "Running a bookstore is like running an insane asylum."--George Leibson but then happened upon this article about Amazon pricing.

Here's the thing- Amazon's pricing is not the actual price. It's a sale price. Granted a sale that does not have a predetermined start or end. Amazon is not there to help people find the best deal. It's there to sell you stuff quick for as much as you're willing to pay. Please people, use Isbn.nu if you want to comparison shop.
