Site Licenses, Er, Inclusive Access, Will Save Textbook Publishing
by Nate Hoffelder
28 Mar 2017 at 12:14pm

If you wait long enough, any idea, no matter how old, will become new again. Joseph Esposito proved that point with what he calls "inclusive access": I have been involved with a number of projects over the years to reduce the cost of textbooks, most of which focused on open educational resources (OER), which may be the topic of a future post. The more promising approach, however, may be what is being termed ?inclusive access,? a terrible phrase because it brings in a whiff of a political agenda for what is essentially a matter of business. In inclusive access, publishers work directly with institutions to come up with discounted digital versions of core texts. The institutions then license the books on behalf of the students, sometimes collecting money from the students, sometimes not. We are going to be seeing more of this, though the ultimate form of the model is not yet clear. But happen it will, as there are too many incentives for it to fail to move forward. Yeah, that's not a new idea. When I wrote about this topic five years ago the practice was known as site licenses, a system where institutions negotiate a reduced license fee based on [...]

Amazon Launches Store-Pick Grocery Service in Seattle

28 Mar 2017 at 9:18am

The logo of Amazon is seen at the company logistics center in Lauwin-Planque, northern France, February 20, 2017. REUTERS/Pascal Rossignol Amazon's cashier-free convenience store may be struggling to keep track of which customer bought what, but their next brick-and-mortar operation won't share its problems with automation. Amazon.com Inc launched AmazonFresh Pickup at its brick-and-mortar grocery store in Seattle, as the online giant attempts to crack into the multi-billion dollar grocery market dominated by retail giants such as Wal-Mart Stores Inc. AmazonFresh Pickup, currently open only to employees, allows users enrolled in its Prime service, to drive in and pick up groceries from the company's grocery store in Seattle, which it opened last year. Amazon Prime members can place the order online and choose a time for the pick up, the company said on Tuesday. The company will keep the order bagged. The company also delivers groceries to homes under its AmazonFresh service. Amazon also has a physical bookstore in Seattle, as well as pop-ups at malls where it displays Amazon devices such as the Kindle.

Podcast: Exploring Amazon with Data Guy
by Nate Hoffelder
27 Mar 2017 at 2:23pm

The pseudonymous Data Guy was interviewed on the Self-Publishing formula podcast last Friday. If you haven't met with DG or heard how he got into confounding the legacy industry with stats that even Mike Shatzkin has been forced to accept, this is well worth your time to listen. And for those who need or prefer to read the podcast (there's an annoying buzz in DG's voice), you can find a transcript over on the SPF website.

Book Cycle Connects Students Buying and Selling Textbooks
by Nate Hoffelder
27 Mar 2017 at 9:31am

When I was in college I usually bought my textbooks online on sites like half.com and then sold them back to the bookstore at the end of the semester. This combined the best buying price with the least hassle in selling. It was too much bother to ship a textbook, and trying to sell it locally to another student just kept not working out. But then I didn't have access to apps like Book Cycle. Not to be confused with the UK charity of the same name, Book Cycle is a smartphone app for Android and iOS which connects students who want to buy or sell textbooks locally: Having experienced this frustration himself, a college student by the name of Shawn Lewis Jr., along with his friend, created an app to help fix the problem. It's called Book Cycle, and it works very much like Craigslist, thredUp or eBay. Book Cycle works by connecting college students with other students in their area to buy and sell the textbooks they need for their courses. Users can search for the title of the book they need, or by the ISBN number. Then, when they've found a seller, the app has a built-in chat [...]

James Patterson Now Blurbs His Own Books
by Nate Hoffelder
26 Mar 2017 at 4:14pm

Ask any expert in book marketing about blurbs and they will tell you that you should get the biggest name you can find to recommend your books. Clearly James Patterson's publisher, Hachette, has come to the conclusion that they can't find anyone bigger than James Patterson, so why not have him blurb his own books. After all, if you can't trust the biggest brand in publishing then who can you trust? credit: Curtis Sittenfeld, on twitter

Rumor Has it Sony Has a 10? eReader in the Works
by Nate Hoffelder
25 Mar 2017 at 3:29pm

For a company that stopped making ereaders and got out of the ebook market in 2014, Sony sure is good at finding new excuses to make devices with E-ink screens. Rumor has it that Sony has a 10" replacement for its DPT-S1 writing slate in the works. Yesterday a new member of MobileRead posted a screenshot which they claimed was taken from a recent Sony survey. The screenshot shows a 10" device next to a 13.3" device (and no, we don't know what Sony asked next).   As commenters pointed out in responses to the OP, this screenshot is highly suspect. The devices are swapped left for right, and there is no sign that either device shown in the screen shot is functional. (In particular, neither device has the buttons found on the DPT-S1, the 13.3" writing slate that Sony launched in 2013 and quietly discontinued last year.) And let's also not forget that this was someone's first post on Mobileread, which increases the chance it could be a hoax. But if the survey is real then it means Sony is thinking about releasing a 10" writing slate, possible one with the 10.3" screen teased on the Boeye T03 ereader or the Remarkable writing slate. If [...]
