Small Bookshops and E-Readers

29 Sep

I’ve just stumbled upon some potentially great news, starting this month it looks like small bookstores will be able to break into the e-book market, this is thanks to a new deal between ABA (American Booksellers Association) and Kobo. Through this deal indie bookstores will be able to sell Kobo e-readers and accessories in their stores, and the store will then gain a profit from any kobos that, that store sold.
Kobo which has never held many American consumers is hoping to use this as a way to spring board into a higher state of public awareness.
I just wish that I would be able convince the owners of my shop to try this out with Kobo, I’m not too hopeful as we’re not allowed to have a website or even a facebook page.
