How German Publishers Deal with Amazon - Publishers' Weekly

Tolino? Who knew?
Panzer was in the Catosphere today visiting some of his favorite sites. Our inquisitive kitty stopped in at the Publishers' Weekly site. After doing some digging around in there he found an interesting post from a couple of days ago about Amazon.

According to a post by Andrew Albanese, Amazon's Kindle ereader is not the market leader in Germany that it is in the United States. The Tolino ereader is. The Tolino has been around since 2013 and has managed to develop a large footprint in Germany. Combined sales of the several Tolino ereader models have 45 percent of the market there. Most of the post consists of an interview with the Chairman of the German Publishers and Booksellers Association Heinrich Riethmuller.

Panzer says, "Hmmm. Did Amazon make a misstep in Germany?"

Note: A cup of tea should be enough for reading this post.
