Macmillan books coming back to Amazon

NEW YORK (AP) - After a weeklong absence, new copies of Andrew Young's "The Politician," Hilary Mantel's "Wolf Hall" and other books published by Macmillan are available for purchase on Amazon.com.

Since last Friday, Amazon had limited the availability of Macmillan releases in a dispute over e-books, with Macmillan calling for a new pricing model that would end the $9.99 rate Amazon had been setting for best-sellers.

Macmillan and other publishers believe $9.99 is too low and threatens the value of books overall.

Amazon, where new copies of Macmillan books were returning Friday night, had announced last week it expected to "capitulate."

Macmillan CEO John Sargent had issued a memo Thursday saying a resolution was probably near.
