VP & Executive Editor, HarperCollins Publishers
 
Interview starts at 18:58 and ends at 43:28
 
There are a lot of very serious readers at Amazon, and honestly I think that that’s something that is not understood. They don’t all work on the editorial team vetting books for Best of the Month, but we did and I assume they still are using a lot of readers from the rest of the company who are not technically on the editorial team but who are passionate about reading and who read a lot. There were some really wonderful readers and reviewers that we cherry-picked from around the company. Book love is very much alive at Amazon.
