HarperCollins & Amazon reach deal

06:33 AM by AnemicOak in E-Book General | News

There's not going to be a protracted dispute between Amazon and HarperCollins, as there was between Amazon and Hachette back in 2014.

Amazon.com Inc. and HarperCollins Publishers have reached agreement on a new multiyear publishing pact that covers both print and digital titles, HarperCollins said.

An agreement between HarperCollins and Amazon puts an end to speculation the companies were nearing a showdown that would disrupt the sale of HarperCollins titles.

The agreement calls for HarperCollins to set the retail prices of its digital books, with incentives for HarperCollins to provide lower prices to consumers, according to a person familiar with the situation.

The deal’s specific financial terms weren’t available. The new agreement is expected to go into effect this week.

Kindle for Android Update 4.11 Adds Lots of New Features

Kindle for Android Update 4.11 Adds Lots of New Features

Amazon updated their Kindle for Android app this past week to version 4.11.0, and with it comes a whole slew of changes—it’s one of the bigger updates in a long time.

Among the new features, Word Wise has been added to the Kindle Android app. Previously Word Wise was only available on the current lineup of Kindle eReaders.

It’s surprising to see Amazon add that feature to Android when it’s not even available on Fire tablets yet.

The way Word Wise works is it gives short explanations above challenging words to help readers understand more challenging books. There’s a slider you can adjust to show more or less hints depending on your reading level.
