Books-A-Million Follows In Barnes And Nobles' Footsteps By Pulling DC Books Off Shelves
Now the second largest bookstore chain in the U.S., Books-A-Million pulls 100 DC graphic novels due to the Kindle deal.
Last week it was reported that Barnes and Nobles was upset over the fact that DC was exclusively releasing their comics on the Kindle.
But Publisher's Weekly is now reporting that the same thing that caused Barnes and Nobles to remove their DC books in now happening to Books-A-Million.
In a release issued by Books-A-Million, CEO Terrance Finley said, “Due to DC Comics plan to sell the digital format of their top 100 graphic novels exclusively through Amazon’s Kindle Fire, BAM Stores are currently removing physical copies of these titles from our shelves.” Finley said that supporting any publisher that “selectively limits distribution of their content,” is not in the interest of BAM customers. “We will not promote titles in our stores showrooms if publishers choose to pursue these exclusive arrangements that create an uneven playing field in the marketplace.”
Books-A-Million recently became the United States second biggest bookstore chain after Barnes and Nobles, and with over 200 stores this is another major prbolem that DC will have to face.
