I can get Kindle books through my library for free. Why would I pay for Amazon Prime to not own the book? Now if they took the Audible model, where I pay a set price a month for 2 credits, and each audio book is 1 credit, and did that with the Kindle, where I get to keep the digital copy? I'd totally be up for that. I think the ease of Audible is why I buy and listen to so many audio books now. I'd love if they used that model for the Kindle books.
