Harvard Book Store in agreement with HarperCollins to print books in-house

Harvard Book Store confirmed in its own e-newsletter, in a special note by owner Jeff Mayersohn, that business during the holiday season went above and beyond expectations, partly, Mayersohn suspects, because of blacklash from Amazon’s Jungle Logic, as writer Richard Russo put it in the New York Times.

In the wake of such good fortune, the bookstore also announced a new partnership with HarperCollins:

I am pleased to report the latest development toward realizing our vision: an agreement with HarperCollins, under which our robot will be able to print thousands of recent works. The list includes books from such writers as Russell Banks, Doris Lessing, Joyce Carol Oates, Agatha Christie, Michael Chabon, Neil Gaiman, Ursula K. Le Guin, Dennis Lehane, Ann Patchett, Richard Wright, and Howard Zinn, among many others.
