Amazon has decided not to offer our Kindle editions at this time. Our other electronic formats are available from booksellers nationwide.
So...buy another format from another retailer, transcode to a format that the kindle will accept, load onto kindle, life goes on.
People who read e-books are buying more books--both print and e-books--online and via apps and buying fewer books at bricks-and-mortar stores, according to the latest results of the Book Industry Study Group's Consumer Attitudes Toward E-Book Reading survey, conducted by Bowker Market Research.
More than half of e-book readers used apps more to purchase books, and more than a third increased the use of general retail websites such as Amazon.com. This increase apparently came at the expense of bricks-and-mortar stores: more than a third of e-book users said they have decreased spending at chains and 29% are buying less at independent bookstores.
Among other findings of the survey:
While still favored by a majority of e-book readers, dedicated e-reader devices are slowly losing popularity. Some 60.9% of respondents prefer e-readers, down from 71.6% in the previous survey.
Almost 17% of respondents prefer tablets for e-reading, up from 13%.
Smartphones similarly rose, to 9.2% from 5.3%.
Yes, there's money to be saved, but I can assure you that savings won't be passed on to the small press, and while some of it would probably be used to reduce the price, I would suspect the lion's share of the money saved would go to shareholders.
