    My husband and I are extremely pleased with Reilly! You team, Bruce and David, are masters. They came each day when they said they would and worked diligently, and I was pleasantly surprised that they were quiet and didn't listen to radios. Bruce is a jewel; he was so patient with me and explained answers to all of my questions."

  • Amazon Teaming Up With Superman…Literally

    [caption id="attachment_3989" align="alignleft" width="233" caption="Superman Comics"]comic[/caption]

     

    Amazon's new tablet has teamed up with DC Comics, allowing the Kindle Fire to print hundreds of digital copies of the popular graphic novels. This has caused quite a commotion for other competing tablets and bookstores. Ddvid Streitfeld of The New York Times discusses more in his article In a Battle of the E-Readers, Booksellers Spurn Superheroes:

    The tablet wars have begun. Superheroes are the prize — or perhaps the victim. Amazon, seeking to make its coming Kindle Fire tablet as appealing as possible, negotiated a deal with DC Comics for the exclusive digital rights to a hundred popular graphic novels. Among the series: Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, the Sandman and Watchmen.

    Barnes & Noble, with a tablet of its own to nurture, did not like this one bit. Two weeks ago it removed all the copies of the physical volumes from its 1,300 stores, saying it would not carry any book if it were denied the right to sell the digital version.

    Books-a-Million, the third-largest bookseller with 231 stores, followed suit last week, making the same argument.

    Booksellers of all sorts used to pride themselves on never removing any book from their shelves, but that tradition — born in battles over censorship — is fading as competitive struggles increase. Last year, in a sort of foretaste of the present conflict, Amazon temporarily removed the “buy” buttons for the publisher Macmillan as part of a struggle over e-book pricing.
