When I first picked it up, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from Room. The cover, with its year 4 student-like illustration, made it seem like a secondary school reader. But the comments, plastered on both sides of both covers, as well as on the title page ( making it 6 pages of quote-tastic praise) made it seem otherwise. “Deeply deeply disturbing” wrote A.N. Wilson. “This book will break your heart” claims the Irish Times. “Gut-wrenchingly compassionate” writes the Daily Mail. I knew this was a book I had to read.
The decision by Google to end the ebook reseller program has been met with much disappointment. Emily Powell, head of Powell’s books, one of the sixteen resellers, said it was ‘extremely disappointing.’
Perhaps it was too good to be true to start with; Google, a large multinational, partnering with independent booksellers all over the world (including Dymocks in Australia) to deliver ebook content to consumers.
After all, it hadn’t been done before. Amazon has clung rigidly to control of its kindle empire, Kobo has integrated with a select few ebook stores ( I can only think of Indigo and Borders) and Barnes and Noble have kept their NookBooks to themselves. So was Google’s ebook reseller program destined to fail?
