B&N, why do you suck so hard?

As a followup to my last post, compare B&N's Current PubIt Bestsellers list (on the right of the page) to the actual list of bestselling PubIt books. What's missing from the former? You got it-- any and all erotic romance titles.


  1. I foresee this becoming a bigger and bigger problem in the future. I find it interesting that they're not (or maybe they are) pulling the excerpts from other spicy traditionally published books.

  2. They don't seem to be pulling them from traditional titles, but I could certainly be wrong. We've been discussing this on Kindleboards, and my personal guess is that indie success has led to problems-- ie, the prevalence of erotica in the top PubIt sellers has caused some people to be offended, and to start clicking "report this" in large quantities. That's just speculation, though *shrugs*.

  3. Yeah, I've seen the report this button. I think that's a very dangerous thing to have under every book because it can and WILL lead to censorship. :(
