From Amazon.com this morning: "Hachette has disallowed the sale of ebooks except on agency terms effective as of 12:01 am this morning." It's rumored that eBooks from Hachette Books will not be available to customers until at least April 3. Other publishing houses, including Penguin, HarperCollins, and Simon & Schuster have either reached an agreement or are working towards an agreement with Amazon. [GalleyCat]
