A Step Up for Ebooks and Step Back for Amazon

American Booksellers Association and Ingram Digital Ventures have agreed to allow BookSense.com booksellers to sell ebooks in Palm, Adobe, and Microsoft formats. (What, no Sony BBeB?). Via ShelfAwareness

Does this mean Amazon is cut out of this loop as well? This summer, Amazon refused to carry any ebooks distributed by Lighting Source, the Ingram e-distribution arm.

I hope this also means that ebook sales start to get counted as part of the sell through numbers for an author as well as part of the factors considered by the “bestseller” lists.
