Amazon to Pay eBook Authors by Pages Read

For those authors who choose to participate in Kindle Select, the payment arrangement is changing. Instead of paying based on the number of times a book is borrowed, they will now pay based on how many pages are read. Some say this means you should write longer books in order to earn more… But this doesn’t take into account reader interest—if a reader isn’t interested continuing to read a lengthy but boring book, she is likely to just return it and borrow a new one. So what this means, to me, is that you should write more interesting books which keep the reader engaged to the very end!
