Chrislands has been sold to ABE

copied and pasted from an email from Chrislands  .. April 9, 2008 1:17:29 PM CDT


Later today there will be a public announcement that AbeBooks has purchased Chrislands.  We (Lance and Jaymes) agonized over the decision whether to accept AbeBook's purchase offer.  Although the terms of the agreement are not being disclosed, the one area of the agreement that we can disclose is that AbeBooks agreed to allow us to continue to operate Chrislands.com.

Before accepting the offer, we talked to Anirvan Chatterjee and Charlie Hsu at BookFinder.com.  You may recall in 2005 AbeBooks purchased BookFinder.com.  Anirvan and Charlie confirmed AbeBooks has allowed them to continue to operate BookFinder.com without dictating how BookFinder.com should be run.  We will continue to operate Chrislands in the same manner as always.   Our commitment to Chrislands customers is not changing, our support is not changing, and our commitment to continually improving the stores will not change.

We are excited about partnering with AbeBooks because AbeBooks provides resources to Chrislands that we would not otherwise have available.  The next improvement we will add is the capability for your books to be included in BookFinder.com search results.  We are currently working with BookFinder.com on this new feature.  We will soon release the details of how to integrate your store into Bookfinder.com search results.  It is our intent that the capability to be included in BookFinder.com search results is only the first of many improvements we can make using the resources that AbeBooks is making available to us.

Please contact us at info@chrislands.com if you have any questions or concerns.
