Amazon’s senior vice president for Kindle
We can all observe the fact that in every single digital media category subscriptions is playing an important role—in music, in movies, in newspapers—you cannot find a digital medium where subscription isn’t a model that succeeds at some level, and I don’t think books will be immune to this. Immune is even the wrong word, because it makes it sound like they’re necessarily a bad thing, and I don’t think that’s true. So what we need to do is think about how subscription can be a great value for the customers who participate but grow the business and be incremental to it.
