A few additional thoughts about Jeff Bezos and Amazon from an established author.

Love him or hate him, Bezos is a man of vision and that is good for the book industry. Sadly, far too many publishers strive for "business as usual," but the big picture is that more people are reading (I believe) than ever before. That is a wonderful for publishers, booksellers, book lovers/readers and yes, even authors and writers! 

 

This is from novelist and WTC colleague Jack Engelhard, who writes on a variety of topics in his column.

Jeff Bezos saved books as much as Gutenberg saved printing.
