Another Reason Not to Like Amazon (In Case You Needed One More)
A study of any Christian bestseller chart instantly reveals that the adult coloring book from Christian Art Gifts titled Today is Going to be a Great Day is, without any doubt, the number one selling title in its category.
But “coincidentally” the month of March brings us a title with exactly the same name published by CreateSpace which Amazon acquired in 2005. This just seems mean-spirited and brings competition to a new low. This shameless cashing in on the popularity of another title is totally reprehensible. I guess they’re assuming, ‘They’re Christians. They won’t take us to court.’
As I’ve stated before, we won’t carry CreateSpace products in our store, and won’t special-order them for customers except under extreme duress.
Many consumers will no doubt be duped be the title “similarity” but fortunately booksellers will think twice because of the publisher’s short discount. At least, let’s hope so.
I will bless those who bless you, and him who dishonors you I will curse (Gen 12:3a ESV)
I will bless those who bless you, I will curse those who treat you with contempt (same, HCSB)
I will also bless those who bless you and further you in your journey, and I’ll trip up those who try to trip you along the way. (same, The Voice Bible)
