Here’s a 5:30 minute report from PRI’s Studio 360 with Kurt Anderson talking about Amazon.com, the publisher.

From a text summary:

“Jason Boog, editor of the book industry blog GalleyCat, said Amazon is poised to become the next big powerhouse in publishing, but it comes at a sensitive time.”

“We’re watching the publishing industry contract, because digital books don’t bring in the same margins of profit that you would see with a hardcover,” Boog said. “As Amazon taps into these millions of people that want to self-publish, they’re going to have a tremendous distribution channel.”
