Books Obama Will Tear Booksellers Apart
posted by August 19 at 15:51 PMon
The Associated Press is reporting that for two weeks, Amazon will exclusively carry a book called Obama’s Challenge. Barnes and Noble is reportedly so pissed about this exclusive deal that they’re refusing to carry Obama’s Challenge. They will do special orders for the book and sell it through their website, however.
Frankly, all this amounts to is great publicity for Chelsea Green Publishing, the tiny little publisher of Obama’s Challenge. The book looks like nothing but a pie-in-the-sky economic challenge to Obama, with no real grounding in political reality. But it’ll probably sell five times as many copies now.
