On Thursday, Amazon jumped into the digital book lending business, announcing the launch of Kindle Owners Lending Library for Amazon Prime members. PW’s Features Editor Andrew Albanese runs through what’s to like, and what’s not to like, for publishers and authors about this latest move to drive Kindle sales (and oh yes, book sales, too). PW Reviews Director Louisa Ermelino gives CCC’s Chris Kenneally a behind-the-scenes look at the work that went into creating PW’s 100 Best Books list. And Rose Fox accounts for why PW’s reviews section has its heart set on Valentine’s Day when the rest of us haven’t had Thanksgiving Dinner yet!
Every Friday, CCC’s “Beyond the Book” speaks with the editors and reporters of “Publishers Weekly” for an early look at the news that publishers, editors, authors, agents and librarians will be talking about when they return to work on Monday.
