Kindle Nation Daily: The e-reader saga is turning into a business thriller, says USA Today

Timely snapshots – both the blog post and the USA Today story

In this morning's USA Today, David Lieberman has the most thorough, well-reported, balanced, and well-written piece that I have seen yet on the growing effort by book publishers to push back against Amazon, the Kindle, and the ebook revolution in pricing, delivery and convenience.
It's entitled Tension grows as publishers target Amazon Kindle pricing, and it is highly recommended reading for all citizens of Kindle nation. The writing is snappy, and the piece avoids the far too common error that has been committed lately by so many journalists and bloggers of parroting each other's uninformed and mistaken assertions on such issues as the percentage that Amazon pays publishers for Kindle content and the extent to which Amazon does or does not "subsidize" Kindle editions of major publishers' books.
