Apple buys BookLamp

Digital Trends says Apple has bought up BookLamp to compete (possibly) with Amazon’s Kindle Unlimited eBook subscription platform.

Not sure how that will work out if they’re also pushing publishers and writers into exclusive contracts to participate in the eBook subscription service. (Unless the iPad maker is going to call up its old price-fixing buddies.)

Amazon’s already getting lots of resistance from authors and publishers who want an open market. The big picture in digital content never allows for exclusivity. (Cue the eBook pirates.)

And Digital Book World says Penguin Random House dominates the Amazon Best Books for 2014 list. (…a little premature, perhaps. There are five months to go…)

Publisher revenue down. eBook sales up.

Gigaom posted on a BookStats report that showed U.S. Publisher revenue remained flat in 2013 though the unit sales increased. Lower eBook prices could account for this.

Another important thing to consider when reading this report is Indie author and publisher titles without ISBNs are not tracked by BookStats.
