My conclusion here is fairly obvious. I won the war!
Or, okay, we, the indies, won the war.
Some may say, "You didn't win the war--Amazon.com and Apple and Google won the war."
I disagree. I have been fighting the bookstore chains since 1985. So, if I have been fighting them, and if the chains go kerplunk, then, clearly, I won.
Thank you very much!

I feel great!
