“I do think that there is an incredible level of smart, energetic, ambitious people at Amazon working in books. That’s an incredible asset. I’m optimistic that Amazon will continue to be able to hold its own. I also see great opportunity for others. I have a very optimistic view of the future of storytelling. I think it’s a great time to be a storyteller. You just have to be smart about the different ways you reach an audience.”
