Amazon Patent Approved for Electronic Access to Physical Text

Amazon was granted a patent on Tuesday for its Amazon Upgrade program which is supposed to allow electronic access to owners of a physical text. It also has a “features suppression” which allows a publisher to allow some text to be viewed while hiding others such as allowing an ingredients list to be shown but hiding the instructions. Via ARS.

She self publishes NA and contemporaries (and publishes with Berkley and Montlake) and spends her downtime reading romances and writing about them. Her TBR pile is much larger than the one shown in the picture and not as pretty. You can reach Jane by email at jane @ dearauthor dot com
