    sounds good for both the customer and the author.

    all i now want is DRM free, which would cause me to join the ebook club in the first place.

    Well its nice that amazon appears to be enticing them to sell ebooks cheaper,
    as the current prices of ebooks - at near enough same as paper - are quite frankly SILLY

    Sorry but this sounds like a lousy deal for the customer as it takes away the choice of e-reader from the reader... This basically is a move to lock authors and readers into using the amazon kindle, and to force other e-readers out of the market or make them pay Amazon to be able to support the kindle format.

    As for them becoming DRM free... it would be great, almost as great as being able to choose which e-reader and format I want to use.
