Digital Book Programs from Amazon

Thursday, Amazon.com announced the company is currently developing two new programs, using the successful, two year-old Search Inside the Book feature for leverage.

The first program, Amazon Pages, will allow consumers to purchase parts of a book rather than the entire book. Purchased parts will be readable online.

Amazon Upgrade, the second program, will allow consumers to purchase a complete online version of physical books they purchase. The book can then be accessed online 24/7.

The announcement didn't indicate an anticipated launch time.

Unless the authors get a good return on it, I think Amazon's screwing them.

But then, Amazon and I are currently not getting along!
