There's more grumbling about the former Prince Harry's memoir than just those who find it in poor taste.
The Guardian reports that smaller booksellers aren't thrilled with how their larger rivals are heavily discounting the book.
Waterstones, Foyles, and Amazon UK are all selling Spare at half-price right now; the US Amazon site isn't listing a discount though the hardcover is reduced at Barnes & Noble.
Some indie bookstore staffers told the Guardian they would, therefore, only order a few copies to keep in stock, while others expressed hope that the January 10 release date would at least spur more traffic into their shops during what's usually a quieter period.
