Bloomsbury books back on Amazon
01.01.70 | Anna Richardson
Amazon and Bloomsbury's dispute over terms appears to have been resolved, with titles that Amazon had removed from sale now back on offer from the online retailer.
Amazon had previously removed the "Buy New" button on a range of Bloomsbury titles including Elizabeth Gilbert's Eat Pray Love, William Boyd's Restless and Michael Ondaatje's Divisadero. The move indicated that Amazon had not been reordering titles from Bloomsbury once it sold out of stock.
The titles, which earlier this week were only available via Amazon Marketplace, are now all available to buy new on the site.
The move follows a letter sent by the Society of Authors to Amazon.co.uk senior books manager Kes Nielsen and Bloomsbury m.d. Richard Charkin yesterday (Monday), outlining its concerns about the situation.
Neither Bloomsbury nor Amazon would comment on the news. An Amazon spokesperson said: "We won't comment on rumour and speculation. The books mentioned do have Buy buttons. We won't comment on relationships with our suppliers."
