Use Kindle to get longer Amazon book previews
Authored by: kirkmc on Mar 10, '09 10:09:48AM

The difference is between, currently, a few thousand books, mostly by unknown and self-published authors, available from a handful of sites, and 245,000 books available from Amazon. And it's also a difference of price: new releases - hardcovers - mostly for $10, far below what the other sites charge.

I certainly understand that this is an incremental change - I was doing some work for an ebook publisher here in France about ten years ago - but content is king. What Amazon has done for ebooks is similar to what Apple did for digital music.
