    CyberRead Calling It Quits

      The thinning process that the Agency Model is driving among the smaller eBook sellers ("We forgot about the distributors." was their excuse) continued apace this morning, as CyberRead announced that they're shutting down.  The reason they gave is not new, nor is this the last time we'll hear it:

       

      "Our team has high hopes for this business and have worked crazy hours over the past years in an attempt to succeed an be customer friendly. However, the publishing industry seems to be making many of the same mistakes as the music industry and are allowing big companies to dominate the industry."

       

      Not a trend yet, maybe, but it can only be a matter of time. :smileysad:
