    One bright exception to these crises among Toronto’s major players was the appearance of small presses across the country in large cities and small communities. For example, if your book, fresh off the presses, is expected to sell enough copies to bring in $100,000, and your publisher is willing to invest 15 percent of that income in marketing, the book would then have an allocation of $15,000. The business term for all this clear-cutting is “disintermediation”: the elimination of the “gatekeepers,” as Bezos calls the professionals who get in the customer’s way.

Similarly, bookstore sales peaked in 2007 and have fallen since, according to the U. Electronic waste is becoming a growing environmental problem, and even though companies like Apple and Amazon have recycling programs in place, there's a good chance e-readers will contribute to the electronic waste stream.

    Fine showed the article around, and the next day a printed copy came back to him, with “Fix This” scrawled across the page in Bezos’s hand, and a budget of roughly a million dollars attached. (Amazon denies this.) Every year, Fine distributes grants of twenty-five thousand dollars, on average, to dozens of hard-up literary organizations.

If you own an iPad, a Kindle, a Kobo, a Sony or any other eReader, or even if you’re inclined to read ebooks the old-fashioned way, on your PC, you will know what I mean when I say that the ebook experience for Australians is a thoroughly impoverished and deeply depressing one.
