But after today’s prohibition is in place, if you’re using the Google Books app and you want to purchase an eBook, but rather than from Apple or Amazon, you want to purchase it from your local bookstore, well, forget being able to have an easy to click link to your favorite bookstore if it’s on this growing list of Independent booksellers.
