Amazon might build a Netflix-style store for e-books

If you’re a fan of Amazon.com, you might be interested to know that the internet behemoth is considering launching a subscription service that resembles Netflix, but for digital books. As you can guess, customers would pay an annual fee to access a library of e-books. The e-book library is likely to be lumped in with Amazon Prime services.

Although the details are still vague and ambiguous, reports by the Wall Street Journal say that Amazon has already started talks with book publishers, and you guessed it, publishers are worried. The publishers are concerned that the latest titles might be excluded, kind of like how Netflix is currently operating.

Others are hesitant to get in on the action because they fear that by doing so, they would diminish the value of individual books. Reports claim that as of this moment, it is still unclear whether any of the publishers have already given in to Amazon’s proposal.

Well, all we can do is wait and see.
