Check out Orson Scott Card’s rant about Amazon’s business practices. This rings very true to me who has just spent a considerable amount of Christmas money on Amazon and who bought just about all his books in 2011 there.
This also ties into my recent rants about Amazon’s quality of editing on Kindle books. To their credit, they refunded my money for the book I referenced as an example.
But Orson Scott Card’s comments on Amazon are correct. Their quality is going down rapidly now that the competition is in decline, with Borders gone. I am still a bookstore mooch, but I am rethinking my strategy.
I hope it’s not too late.
