Autorip For Books

Dan Frommer wonders what it would take for Autorip for books to happen.

With Autorip I was able to dip into past purchases on Amazon. It was great. Lots of Rod Stewart albums I bought for my mom on CD…

But, OOOH – Amazon Autorip for books would, gahhhhhhh. I’d like it a lot.

I wonder if Amazon is trying to get this off the ground if only to encourage sales of physical media to clear out their distribution centers, then pull the rug out when the inventory is gone and shut down the distribution centers as part of a transition to an electronic goods company.

Because $6 paperbacks aren’t as profitable as $90 shoes.
