Well, Covey will get all the money his books generate in this scenario. He doesn't take royalties as he would with a conventional publisher. The question is, do all Covey's readers have an e-reader, or will they go out and get one now that Covey is exclusively publishing in this format?
I wanted to listen to Bob Dylan's XM radio program, but not enough to buy an XM radio. I'll wait until the programs are released on CD. A few have been.

The ramifications for this are enormous. A mega-bestselling writer signing an exclusive deal with amazon/kindle. It's sure looking like the publishers of the future aren't going to be Random House, Knopf, Simon & Shuster, Little Brown, etc., but amazon/kindle, bn.com, Walmart, Target, etc.
