you couldn't make it up
i thought this was a joke when i read it. sadly it is not. incredible
Amazon's UK tentacle is selling a Kindle version of the Wikileaks documents for £7.37. Although the documents are freely available, it seems an odd move from Amazon which kicked Wikileaks off its hosting service. Even odder Amazon's US Kindle store is not stocking the collection of documents. The book is published by Heinz …
Amazon is in the vanity publishing business so anybody and their uncle can slap together some piece of crap and throw it up for sale. Amazon probably price their books by the page hence the price.
My guess is Mr Heinz Duthel whose past works appear to all be of the cut and pasted variety is one such vanity publisher. IMO he should have his arse kicked off the system not for printing up wikileaks but for being a leech who is simply plagiarising material in the public domain to line his pockets.
The reviews are fantastic, about the same level of drama as giving firearms to toddlers.
Particularly as half of them can’t read so didn’t spot the “DOES NOT CONTAIN TEXT OF CABLES” which is all over the place and the fact this is a self-published digital work not something the Amazon buyers went out to get.
I do hope Amazon honors all the requests to delete accounts too.
