Authors Are Fighting Amazon’s Audible

Libro.FM Blog: “Amazon’s impact on the book industry is no secret to most readers. From taking business from independent bookshops—business they depend on, unlike Amazon—to limiting accessibility of audiobooks with Audible Exclusives, the company’s dominance threatens diversity of the publishing ecosystem. According to WordsRated, Amazon “controls between 50% and 80% of the book distribution in the United States”—including a 63.4% market share of audiobooks. And because of Amazon’s magnitude, many readers don’t realize that there are ways to fight against the giant—and that many authors already are.”
