This week we discuss Amazon vs Hachette, the new Foyles store, the Bailey’s prize and much more.

We start off with the ongoing dispute between Amazon and Hachette, in particular the news that 3% of Hachette’s US staff have been made redundant (http://www.thebookseller.com/news/hbg-lays-3-workforce.html).

Then we discuss the opening of the new flagship Foyles branch in London (http://www.thebookseller.com/news/foyles-new-flagship-opens-its-doors.html) and Foyles sponsoring the Green Carnation prize. (http://savidgereads.wordpress.com/2014/06/05/foyles-the-green-carnation-partner-up-hoorah/)

Finally we turn to the winner of the Bailey’s Prize (http://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/jun/05/eimear-mcbride-serious-readers-challenged-baileys-womens-prize and Galley Beggar Press (http://www.thebookseller.com/news/bookseller-henry-layte-discovering-mcbride.html) and get some listener feedback from Canada!
