I blogged about ____ this past week…

This weeks random question: So, apparently Amazon is now going to pay its Kindle Unlimited & Select authors by pages read. You can read more about this {here}. What do you think of this? Share your thoughts!

I am really not sure how I feel about this one. Musing Monday has stumped me this time because this could be good or it could be bad. The most important thing if you ask me is that Author’s get paid, they work hard and deserve to be paid for the work they do. I understand breaking up albums and paying for a track by track thing there but can you really do that with a book? I mean really? Then I also have to ask is there a certain amount of time you have to spend on a page? What if you spend to long on the page? There are a lot of questions that need answers for this new page by page thing.

Honestly I am not sure this is a good idea there is just to much that needs to be answered. That said I am not one who is on the big bad amazon train either. I proudly have amazon prime and it saves me a lot of money. I buy my dog food on amazon because its around $7 cheaper then getting it locally and I save on the shipping. When you are feeding more then one dog that money adds up, plus it means I do not have to go out in the blazing heat and spend money on gas for dog food. I do support local business but sometimes you have to be logical.I also love my streaming videos on Amazon and my books. Lets face it most local book stores these days (if you have one) cater to the best sellers and modern romance mostly. If you like niche subjects you won’t find much in the local shops but you can find it on amazon.

Bottom line I suppose this could be good, but it could also be very bad. Authors really just need to be paid.
