Delays remain for some Hachette books on Amazon

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) The Book Group conflict is over, but the restoration of normal service will take at least a few days.

As of Friday afternoon, shipping times of up to three weeks or longer were still listed for numerous Hachette books. They include James Patterson's "Cross My Heart," J.K. Rowling's "The Casual Vacancy" and J.D. Salinger's "Franny and Zooey."

The online retailer and publisher announced a multiyear agreement Thursday. In a joint statement on the deal, the companies said that "normal trading would resume immediately."

Hachette spokeswoman Sophie Cottrell said Friday she didn't expect books to be fully stocked and available promptly until the middle of next week.

During the dispute, Amazon had removed pre-order buttons and cut back on orders and discounts for Hachette releases.
