If Amazon stops selling their books, then for those that read pBooks, there are other places to get them such as B&N.

I know this will be an issue for Kindle users. But then if enough of them get all up in Amazon's face, that could get Amazon to back down.

It doesn't bother me that Amazon is no longer selling books from the BPHs or allowing Kindle eBooks through Overdrive. It could mean that people with older Kindles might just decide to abandon Amazon and go with an ePub capable Reader such as Kobo or B&N.
