24169 Just finished reading the first three books in the Guild Hunter series by Nalini Singh. It does have vampires in it, but they're not the main focus of the story. So if you're interested in some paranormal romance that's not all about the vampires then I think this is a good world to get into.

24169 I thought that people might be interested to know that in the UK the Office of Fair Trading has started an investigation as to whether the agency pricing model is anti-competitive.

The EU Commission has also launched a separate investigation of its own. According to this article though the EU investigation is focused on the French market.

I think it will be interesting to see how both the OFT and the EU Commission rule though I suspect that the rulings will be similar as the OFT will feed information to the EU Commission.

I'm hoping that they will decide that though the publishers' official line indicated that they were only price setting the ebooks, in actuality there was price fixing going on. Price fixing is of course anti-competitive and illegal. And that would mean the end of the agency price model!!
