Chris O’Harra of Auntie’s Bookstore has no plans to get friendly with Amazon

A recent story noted that Seattle-based Amazon is trying to make nice with the very bookstores who are threatened by its vast online impact.

The story noted that Amazon is offering to share some of the revenue from eBooks and ereaders that would be sold by independent bookstores.

The story said the share going back to bookstores would be 10 percent of ebook sales at Amazon for two years.

Chris O'Harra, owner of Spokane's Auntie's Bookstore, was pretty clear in her reaction: She hates really dislikes Amazon and wants nothing to do with the offer.
