That’s a bit like saying the only difference between a dollar and a million dollars is the scale.
We’re not talking about the pathetically small number of people who shop at used book stores. We’re talking about Amazon; one of the largest retailers in the world. Their customer base is four times larger than the population of the United Kingdom.
If you go to a Barnes and Noble book store, you’re not going to find the 25 cent used book on the shelf next to the full price new addition. At Amazon, you do.
Not just a partly few, but millions of used books (already rejected by local used book sellers) are now back on the market and getting into people’s hands. That’s got to change something.
