Hachette

Hachette Book Group in the US has said it is doing “everything in our power to find a solution” to its dispute with Amazon, which has seen the online retailer removing pre-order capabilities from a number of its key summer titles.

In May Amazon in the US took away pre-order buttons from a number of Hachette’s forthcoming titles, including J K Rowling’s new Robert Galbraith novel The Silkworm, out in the US on 19th June. Earlier in the month Hachette in the US accused Amazon of delaying delivery of some books, telling customers they would not be available for a number of weeks.

It was also revealed in May that Amazon routed £11bn through its Luxembourg office last year, where it has based its European operation. The amount is up on the £9.5bn Amazon funnelled through its European head office in 2012, reported The Sunday Times.
