My last year's prediction about a steep drop in electronic book prices is coming true. According to the Wall Street Journal: Inc.'s top 50 digital best-seller list featured 15 books priced at $5 or less on Wednesday afternoon. Louisville businessman John Locke, for example, a part-time thriller writer whose signature series features a former CIA assassin, claimed seven of those titles, all priced at 99 cents.

All-you-can-eat book subscriptions, today we call them libraries, is probably one of the logical scenarios. Amazon or Netflix could become such new digital libraries, providing easy access for various e-readers.
