Amazon is now buying up sites like Walmart, Home Depot, and Target, and taking control of the e-book industry as well.
The company has bought up the ebooks, audiobooks, and music industry for the first time in history, according to a report by Forbes.
In the first half of 2018, Amazon bought more than $1 billion worth of the world, or nearly 5% of all e-books and audiobook sales.
It is a big deal for the company.
Amazon has bought many of the top e-retail sites.
The company has purchased hundreds of thousands of titles from publishers like Penguin Random House, Hachette, and HarperCollins, and from independent publishers like Macmillan and Simon & Schuster.
The Amazon acquisition is the first major acquisition in the world of e-publishing, where the company owns tens of thousands and even millions of titles.
Amazon’s move to acquire more than 100 major publishing companies comes after it bought more of the publishing world in recent years, which it acquired for around $5 billion.
In a report published in April, Forbes noted that Amazon was spending more on the ebook market than Apple did in the same period.
Apple sold more books in the first quarter of 2018 than Amazon did in a decade.
But the move to buy the largest e-marketing company in the industry isn’t just a game changer for Amazon.
The move has also brought an increase in competition for e-readers, and Amazon’s move has led to fewer competing services that consumers can rely on.
For example, a few years ago, Apple had an exclusive deal with e-reader vendor Scribd, which allowed Apple to sell its e-ink-based iPad, iPhone, and Macbook products at discount prices.
Scribd now sells at full price for most e-devices.
The new deal with Amazon means that Scribd and Apple can no longer compete for consumers.
Amazon bought Scribd for a whopping $1.9 billion in December, but that deal didn’t end until 2018.
Scribds price dropped significantly in the months following, and now the company sells for $6.99 instead of $9.99.
In 2018, Scribds iPad mini sold for $199 and the iPad Pro at $299.
The price drop was enough to get the company back into the business of selling products to consumers.
