Critical Linking: July 18th, 2014

 

the company is apparently preparing a new offering called Kindle Unlimited, which will provide “unlimited access to over 600,000 titles and thousands of audiobooks” for $9.99 each month. Amazon has yet to unveil Kindle Unlimited in any official capacity, but users spotted promotional banners for the unannounced service on the retailer’s website.

Well well well. Look who is getting into the book subscription game.

The Recuyell of the Histories of Troye. But these days, it is best known for its place in the literary tradition as the first book ever printed in English, and it just sold for over one million dollars.

A million bucks is a lot for sure, but I would sort of think that the first book printed in English would go for more.
