Amazon might give readers something to get really excited about: A digital ebook and audiobook subscription service that provides Kindle users with all the content they can consume from a potential library of over 600,000 titles for just $9.99 per month. The test pages don’t contain any publishers from the so-called big five, which include Simon Schuster and HarperCollins. Amazon is likely looking for a better deal from publishers, or for greater access to current titles, which could be why they aren’t included in these test pages. Amazon’s big advantage here could be its offering of nearly 8,000 titles in Audiobook format via its Audible acquisition, with Whyspersync for Voice functionality. These are listed on the sample page, and would allow users to switch between their ebook and audiobook versions of the same title fluidly depending on their location and situation. less
