Kindle Open to All Blogs
Amazon is now permitting bloggers to sign up as Amazon vendors to distribute their blogs to Kindle users. Of course, in exchange for this service, Amazon has the power to set pricing for blog subscriptions (usually in the neighborhood of $1-2 per month) and will keep 70% of the proceeds. I'm not in favor of this scheme, which seems to be yet one more way Amazon is trying to make money off the labors of others. Also, I want Literary License to remain a free resource to everyone interested in its content. However, please let me know if you'd like to see Literary License available on the Kindle.
