Not Comics: The Vs. Hachette Battle, International And Wider-Contextualization Edition

This article looks at some of the wider issues the bookseller faces trying to find a foothold in various European markets. It's more summary than descriptive, but it's good to be reminded of some of the broad strokes. One thing that popped for me was an executive expressing certainty that no one would stop shopping at because they don't like them anymore. I actually think there's always a chance of that happening. In fact, most of the people I know make a concerted effort to shop anywhere else if they can, solely because thye don't like Amazon as much as they used to.
