Any old topic will do, I suppose.

Amazon acquires AbeBooks

I use both of these services quite a bit to find rare and out of print books. I think that this is probably a good thing, because of all of the cross posting that goes on between the two.

Here is the press release.

My hope is that the vendor section of Amazon gets better, as its hit-or-miss now, and there are very few ways to stop abuse by booksellers who lie about the condition of their books.
Something is about to happen, Hal. Something wonderful!
