The venture, called Book Lust Rediscoveries, is something Pearl has wanted to do for years. She had reservations about going with Amazon, but says she and her agent shopped the idea to other publishers who didn't pick it up. Pearl says she and her agent were impressed my Amazon's enthusiasm for "resurrecting books that never should have gone out of print in the first place."

Gee, Amazon is evil and predatory, yet when other Publishers were asked first they didn't want to pick up on an out of print project. Sounds a bit like crying wolf, to me.
