The Morning Coffee – 15 July 2014

Pour yourself a large cup this morning, for the reading list is long.The list kicks off with Amazon the friendly giant and finishes up with a publisher's take on the RWA devoting (too much) attention on self-pub. In between the two stories we have a post on how the self-pub/ trad-pub debate is taking on the tones of political debate, the possibility that Google might be regulated as a utility in Germany, and why there's no reason to sign with a major publisher.

About Nate Hoffelder (11579 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
