Indie bookstores wrestle with e-book business

It looks like a bunch of the "little guys" are trying to compete with the Canadian Indigo/Chapters/Coles monopoly by banding together to setup an e-Book infrastructure. This will be interesting.

When Google Books goes International, Indie stores will have what they want. And can't they already be part of the Amazon affiliate program if they want to be paid for linking to/promoting/sorta selling Kindle versions?

I'm not seeing a real story here, but maybe I'm just not getting it. I'd appreciate it if someone can help me see another POV.

Ah, but there's the problem... kindle being a proprietary format that many of your customers' readers can't read.
