+ - Bookstores may boycott new Amazon-published books->

Submitted by destinyland
destinyland (578448) writes "Amazon has begun signing their own authors and then publishing the books themselves, leaving booksellers "wary" as Amazon "tries to have it all," according to a Boston newspaper. The co-owner of an independent bookstore near Cambridge considered boycotting Amazon's new line of books, complaining "They are a huge competitor, and they don't collect sales tax, giving them an unfair advantage." A children's bookstore noted that "the pie is getting cut into fewer pieces. I'd be nervous if I were an adult book publisher." Borders bookstore has already declared bankruptcy, leaving The Daily Show to joke that bookstores should simply become "digital downloading" stations — or a "living history" museum where future generations can learn what "a magazine rack" was."
