Interview starts at 9:38 and ends at 39:45
 
Of the top 100 bestsellers in the Kindle Store for the entire year of 2014, 91 of those books were made available by the publishers at prices that we discovered, put up and featured on BookGorilla. The average price of those 91 on their feature day was $2.92. The total price of those 91 books if you had bought them at their original prices would have been $996. If you bought them on their BookGorilla day it was $265. What’s not to like about that?
