It's always struck me as odd that brick and mortar bookshops actively encourage people to read before they buy, but something similar on the internet is seen as somehow something entirely different. Obviously a book read online can be read repeatedly whereas attempting to do that in a bookshop would get some objections from the staff. I do like that some publishers allow excerpts of books to be available on amazon for people to look at, and I'm sure that they must see some kind of benefit when it comes to the number of sales.

As you've probably already realised, I use amazon a lot. I buy my music from them as well and I like that the site allows the labels to make available 30 seconds of each track on an album so that I can listen first. It's interesting that listening to an album first is something that can't be done in shops. I'd quite like to see what impact that has on sales *heads to google*
