John Grisham Books Now Available On Kindle

by Greg on March 16, 2010

For those of you who have been waiting a long time to start reading John Grisham books on your Kindle, your wait is now over. There are 23 Grisham ebooks now available for the Kindle and, somewhat surprisingly, most of the books are $7.99 with some being as low as $5.99.

Steven Windwalker from The Kindle Nation had this to say:

“It’s no mere coincidence that Grisham’s various publishing imprints are all Random House subsidiaries, and that Random House is the key holdout from the so-called agency model among the Big Six publishers. Random House management has already shown an interest in paying attention to Amazon’s expertise on ebook pricing issues rather than trying to impose a collusive price-fixing scheme down retailers’ throats.

As the Apple 5 publishers try to dress up sow’s ears as silk purses to sell their so-called “hardcover ebooks” at $12.99, $14.99, and $15.99, how will authors like David Baldacci like looking at the Kindle bestseller list and having their new releases trail Grisham backlist titles?”

From the AP:

“John Grisham is one of the greatest storytellers of all time,” Sonny Mehta, chairman and editor-in-chief of the Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, said in a statement. “This is one of our most exciting e-book initiatives to date and is certain to usher in a new generation of Grisham readers and e-book adopters.”

Grisham, the author of such favorites as “The Firm” and “The Pelican Brief,” has expressed mixed feelings about e-books and the quickly growing market, currently estimated at around 3 percent to 5 percent of total sales. In an interview with the “Today” show last fall, he worried that if e-books really caught on “then you’re going to wipe out tons of bookstores and publishers and we’re going to buy it all online.”

I’m sure a lot of bookstores probably will go out of business like a lot of record stores did a few years ago. As far as publishers are concerned, I think that as long as they try to embrace the idea of ebooks and try to think of ways to profit from them, they’ll be okay. As we’ve seen though, not many are going that route yet although Random House seems to be one publisher that knows what’s going on.
