Amazon plans to launch e-book library service

PanARMENIAN.Net - Amazon is exploring a new subscription library service for books, according to ThisIsMyNext.

There aren’t many detailed news except that the service would be focused on older titles and included with a $79/year Amazon Prime subscription, much like Amazon’s existing Instant Video service.

Publishers are said to be somewhat hesitant about the idea, as they fear it could lower the value of books; Amazon is reported to be trying to allay those fears by offering a “substantial fee” for participation and potentially even limiting the number of titles customers can read each month.

Interestingly, Amazon announced the Kindle Lending Library program for public libraries and schools back in April, based on the OverDrive service currently used by almost every major public library in the country.
