Its about time the bookstores of America are waking up to the Google Book Settlement, which with the Amazon Kindle may kill bookstores like iTunes has killed Tower Records and Virgin in SF-yet there may still be a role for independent book sellers if they focus on what Google may omit from its Google Book data base. Read the fine print and the referenced Library Brief for more clues, Otherwise, your author readers and their families should get help from their attorneys and agents and publishers to file claim forms for the $60-$300 per book class action damages and instruct Google Book on price and scope of e-publishing,i.e.snippets, preview,full downloads.
