Book sales and discounts
It's interesting to learn more about the publishing business as I go along. Apparently the larger retailers like Barnes and Noble can get nice discounts on the books they stock, which means they can give the buyers a good discount as well. I like this. It lets the reader buy a book, especially if it's mine, at a decent price, which ultimately should mean more sales. Who wouldn't like more people buying and reading their book? And with this slow economy, it allows people who might not be able to shell out the money for the full price to buy it. It's good all the way around.
