Amazon Working on E-book Subscription Service - Like Netflix for Books!

E-books aren't the cheapest of items and you can't help but feel a little bit ripped off when you don't get a physical product at the end of the transaction. One possible solution would be to bring readers as many books as they want for a fixed monthly fee.

That's an idea currently being tossed around by online retailer Amazon - according to a product page that briefly appeared on their site before being removed. The information there suggested it might be called Kindle Unlimited and could offer access to 600,000 digital titles for a flat fee of $9.99 a month.

That's an incredible deal, especially when you consider individual titles could cost upwards of six or seven dollars and it would also remove another barrier of entry for users - they're already paying so there's more reason for them to be on the Amazon site all the time.

There's been no official word from Amazon but the idea of a book solution to rival the likes of what Netflix (and Amazon) does for video seems like an obvious step. And with their massive library, Amazon is the perfect company to bring a product like this to market.

Hopefully we'll have more news on Kindle Unlimited soon. Then we can see how many books you can read in a month!
