Great Book about how damaging Amazon truly is to the local business. It is the reason I now have a LibraryTHing Account instead of a GoodReads account. ( )

concise and convincing and well researched/explained. he's not the very best reader, but he reads with passion and conviction and covers so much territory in such a short book. this is an expansion (i'm assuming) from the zine he first wrote, and he gives data and information, makes the arguments against amazon and why and how to make other decisions. comprehensive takedown of amazon and why it's a threat to so much.

"Amazon makes things easy, they don't necessarily make them right." ( )

Review of the 20 page 2nd printing edition (white cover) (2020) ( )
  alanteder | Jan 21, 2021 |
In this zine, Danny Caine, owner of The Raven Bookstore in Lawrence, KS, breaks down the harm that the tech giant wreaks on communities, specifically in their devaluation of books which results in the closing of local bookstores.

I want to quote so many things from this zine, but it’s so slim (20 pages) that you can and should read it yourself. So here is my plea: I know that Am*zon sells cheap books. And I know we all want to save a couple bucks. But the tech giant is able to slash book costs because it 1) has so many other revenue streams coming in like advertising sales and tv shows, 2) doesn’t pay taxes, and 3) doesn’t pay a living wage with appropriate benefits or workers’ injury protection.

Meanwhile, buying the hottest new bestseller from your local bookstore allows the bookstore to 1) pay back the publisher their share of the book, 2) pay local workers their wages, which they will spend in your local community, and 3) pay rent, utilities, TAXES, marketing, and partner with local organizations like radio stations, arts groups, chambers of commerce, authors, nonprofits, and more.

So the next time you say, “It seems like there aren’t any local bookstores anymore,” think about how you contributed to that. What future do you want to be a part of?

I recommend purchasing this zine (only $5) from The Raven Bookstore, through your local bookstore, or suggest that your library add it to their collection. I borrowed my copy from the Omaha Public Library.

Happy holiday shopping! (at your local retailers ONLY like The Bookworm in Omaha) ( )
