Amazon has proposed raising the cost of delivering books in France to around 2 euros from next to nothing if parliament withdraws a bill that would make it harder for the e-commerce group to undermine local bookstores, a French senator told Reuters. Senator Laure Darcos said Amazon offered a minimum delivery charge of 1.80 to 2.00 euros ($2.03 to $2.25) when its Vice President for Kindle Books and Content, David Naggar , met the Minister of Culture Roselyne Bachelot on August 25 in Paris. The proposal, details of which have not previously been reported, was part of a months-long lobbying campaign by Amazon to kill the bill, Darcos and five other lawmakers said.
