COALITION FOR CHEAPER BOOKS LAUNCHES PERSONAL ATTACK
In what seems to be an extraordinary attempt to question the integrity of Sheryl Gwyther (our Saving Aussie Books site administrator), the ‘Coalition for Cheaper Books’ has accused her of advertising on her own website for a New Zealand online bookseller who sells her children’s book for 13 % less than in Australia. This occurred after Sheryl presented our PETITIONS to MPs in Parliament House.
Let’s get the facts right: Sheryl Gwyther does not have any ads on her website or her blog, and never has. Check them out for yourself.
This appears to be an attempt to muddy the waters in the debate against Parallel Importation of Book – but just like the Coalition for Cheaper Books’ promises that removing PIRs will cut book prices, it is a claim that has NO substance.
If they are so misinformed about something so simple as Sheryl Gwyther’s publicly accessible website, it makes you wonder about the authenticity of the rest of the data behind the Coalition for Cheaper Books’ claims.
