Amazon Kindle Book Subscription Service Leaks

on Wednesday, Jul. 16th

Not content with owning the online book selling business all but outright, Amazon is testing a subscription service for e-books, according to files dug up by users of the Kindle Boards forum.

Dubbed “Kindle Unlimited” the service would go toe-to-toe with emerging companies like Oyster and the already established Scribd. Amazon’s service, according to the unearthed files, would have 600,000 books available and run just $9.99 a month. Which just so happens to be the sweet-spot price for e-books according to Amazon.

Consumer friendly, to say the least, and almost certain to become another weapon in the retail giant’s ongoing war on publishers.
