  1. Continuing to expand upon its Kindle platform, Amazon today announced launch of “Kindle for the Web,” a new service that will allow users to sample e-books directly through their browsers with no download required. The concept is not all that different from Amazon's current ability to let book publishers share several pages of their books for customers to read before buying anything, but as you’d expect there’s also has a social-networking component to it.

    A full text version, built on a subscription account would make Amazon not only my favorite site, but the site that I would spend the most time on EVER. Think about it, since it would be a web based platform; one could go to it on any device and read their favorite author. Granted, this means that ownership of the book would never be yours. But, if they offered a discounted "to print" option, a book/magazine that you want to actually physically own could be yours, because you were a subscriber.

    Please, if you know someone in Amazon, tell them of this idea, I want to see something like this go live!
