Walmart Jumps Into the Amazon v. Hachette Fight - On The Media

Interesting times in the bookseller business

"Last week, we talked about how Amazon was delaying orders of Hachette books as a negotiation tactic in a pricing argument with the publisher. Walmart has now announced that they'll offer customers 40% off on all Hachette books and quick shipping.
