In an era when it’s rare to see someone who has ethics and even rarer to see those ethics backed up by actions, it’s great to see this heartening work of staggering genius. The follow-up to Dave Eggers’ “hit book ‘The Circle,’ will be available in independent bookstores in October. The paperback will arrive just six weeks later, but the hardcover will remain exclusive to independent stores.” Eggers explains the move: “I don’t like bullies. Amazon has been kicking sand in the face of independent bookstores for decades now.” This is a badass move. But don’t expect it to sandbag Dave’s sales. Indie booksellers are going to love this move. His instore displays might be replaced by a life-size statue. You Won’t Find the Hardcover of Dave Eggers’s Next Novel on Amazon.
