Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) is now offering an all-you-can read (or listen to) digital ebook and audiobook subscription service, featuring more than 600,000 titles, for $9.99 per month. Kindle Unlimited won't be a part of Amazon Prime, but it is the company's latest effort to corner the market in all things digital entertainment, even if it won't move the bottom line much -- or at all.
