    are issues with reading books on the ipad(glare).  I would not be burning any bridges with Amazon...I think they are now the largest seller of books of any type.

      IMHO, they will increase the percentage to be paid authors on Kindle sales in order to stay #1

        Macmillian...I personally will not be paying 15.00 for a Kindle download so I will skip these books.  I have get the actual book for 5.00 more and I know that it costs more to print and distribute books than 5.00.  They want to gouge the kindle users and they only way to justify the expensive device is the more reasonable cost of the downloads.
