    The Chicago Tribune geoblocks Eorope. Do you have an alternative link for this “gone viral” story? (No VPN on my tablet.)

    You can find the original “woe is me” tweet stream on Twitter under the RAVEN BOOK STORE name.

    It comes down to:

    “When we order direct from publishers, we get a wholesale discount of 46% off the cover price. The book in question had a cover price of $26.99, meaning our cost for that book from the publishers would be $14.57. If we sold it for $15, we’d make…43 cents.”

    The $15 price is the online price.

    They expect sympathy and customers. They might get some of the former.
