Libraries selling books through Amazon.com

Warren Cornwall reports in this morning’s Seattle Times about how the King County Library System is now selling used books it collects through Amazon.com.

Library officials say they will raise more money with less effort but acknowledge it will make the books more expensive and the shopping experience a little less memorable.

“Whereas we loved the book sale, it has become a difficult thing to sustain because of the sheer volume of books and the amount of time it took to hold the sales,” said library spokeswoman Marsha Iverson.
