Amazon Buys Rights to Ian Fleming’s James Bond Novels

Amazon:, Inc. and Ian Fleming Publications Ltd today announced that Amazon Publishing has acquired a ten-year license for North American rights to the entire list of James Bond books by Ian Fleming in print and ebook.

So does this mean you won’t be able to buy even the print edition of these books in the U.S. from anyone other than Amazon? Sure hope Amazon does a better job with the cover designs than they’ve done with the current Kindle editions.

Penguin’s new paperback editions have great covers, and some of these classics from the ’60s are even better.
