iBooks Adds eBooks From Random House UK

The first titles from Random House UK have shown up in iBooks today, and so ends a long running drought. Is there any major publisher not using Agency pricing now?

This was the last hold out of the Big 6 publishers, and it had even held off from adopting agency pricing for 3 months after its US sibling. But today that has ended.

Curiously enough, this took longer than I expected. It’s been nearly 2 months since a reliable source told me this was in the works; I wonder about the delay. Of course, the really interesting detail here is that the agency pricing only affects iBooks; the same titles sold in the UK Kindle Store will not be affected (not yet).
