Publishers Weekly reports this morning that PMA, the independent book publishers group, is taking a strong stance against the online sale of galleys. It is encouraging its members to no longer do business with Internet outlets who sell galleys and is revoking an fee discount from its membership benefits. The story reports that 200,000 galleys are listed for sale just on! Ouch.

Yes, me, too. I'm sure there's a backstory to all of this.

Interesting. I wonder how this will affect places that review books that sell review copies to cover their expenses? How do we feel about it as authors?

I've heard varying opinions. I'm kind of surprised they're taking this action, actually.
