UPDATED: eBookNewser has more Amazon news today–the bookseller has launched a Kindle Store in the UK, but UK publishers won’t get to set their own prices. In addition, the president of the American Booksellers Association has criticized Amazon’s deal with the Wylie Agency: “Diminishing the availability of titles and narrowing the options for readers can only harm our society in the long run.”
