The Global Transition to Online Bookselling -- Presented by Russ Grandinetti, Vice President for Kindle Content, Amazon
At Publishers Launch Frankfurt, Frankfurt Book Fair, 8 October 2013
Amazon now operates its books business locally in 11 countries across North and South America, Europe and Asia, affording them a detailed view of how quickly sales are moving online around the world – across both print and digital. Russ Grandinetti, Amazon's VP of Kindle Content, will talk about the pace of that transition globally and how that evolution compares to what’s already taken place in English in the US. Grandinetti will also touch on a number of other topics about the continuing changes in the bookselling and publishing world as he sees them from Amazon's unique perch.
