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.
