[Side note: When I was published by HarperCollins, their travel agent once accidentally faxed me the itinerary for one of Murdoch’s son. The hotel he was staying at in London cost $1,000 a night, and that was 10 years ago.]
A recent article says, “"We don't like the Amazon model of selling everything at $9.99," Murdoch said when asked about electronic books during a conference call with analysts on Tuesday. "They pay us the wholesale price of $14 or whatever we charge," he said. "But I think it really devalues books and it hurts all the retailers of the hard cover books."”
So it sounds like Harper and Zondervan will join Macmillan in standing up to Amazon. And I think that’s a good thing.
