Amazon is in talks with publishers to launch an e-book library that will enable readers to read multiple books for a fixed annual subscription, according to a WSJ report. Publishers, as expected, are not happy about Amazon’s plans as it would lower the value of books and would create problems with their other retail partners. Amazon hopes to tie this e-book library with its $79/year Prime subscription that currently give subscribers two-day shipping among other benefits. The move might be linked with Amazon’s upcoming Android-based tablet and would help the online retail giant something different to talk about than other tablet vendors. In order to pacify publishers, Amazon could limit the number of books a subscriber can read every month. If Amazon is able to pull it off, it would probably be one of the biggest change in online retail after Apple started retailing songs for $0.99 and apps for smartphones.
