How Amazon’s team of old-school book reviewers influences what we read
"The editors produce Amazon Book Review, an online offering similar to literary supplements newspapers have been putting out for more than a century. They also put together frequent lists of recommendations prominently displayed on Amazon’s bookstore. The current team was assembled by Amazon editorial director Sara Nelson, a renowned publishing veteran. Nelson, however, is leaving after a four-year stint to become executive editor and vice president at HarperCollins, one of the big New York publishers. Even as Nelson departs, evidence is clear that Amazon intends to leave its mark in book culture as much as it wants to sell books." ‎- JustDuckie
