Amazon to begin selling parts of books, just the pages you want

BBC NEWS | Business | Amazon to sell chapters of books

An intriguing idea. I wonder if I could just buy one certain short story out of an anthology.

Online retailer Amazon.com has unveiled "two innovative programmes" to allow readers to access parts of books rather than buying the complete work.

It says Amazon Pages will let customers purchase online "just the pages needed" be it a section or chapter, while still offering the whole book up for sale.

And a second scheme, called Amazon Upgrade, will also allow online access to those buying a hard copy of a book.
