Recently, Amazon changed how it computes author payments for Kindle Select borrows. Now a reader has to read an author’s whole book in order for them to get paid their promised royalty. If a person reads less, the author only gets paid a percentage of the royalty. That’s true of no other product. (E.g. If you rent a movie from Amazon and then don’t watch it, they still charge you the full price.) But with this new model, Amazon gets to charge readers for its subscription service whether or not the service is truly used, while simultaneously avoiding paying authors for the products the service provides.
