Amazon Book Does it: Pay-per-page-view and perpetual online access

From WSJ (subs req)

"The Seattle Internet retailer said it is introducing two new programs that allow consumers to buy online access to portions of a book or to the entire book, giving publishers and authors another way to generate revenue from their content. Bertelsmann AG's Random House Inc., one of the country's largest publishers which doesn't participate in the Google Print program, said today that it is negotiating with vendors including Amazon to make the content of its books available to consumers for online viewing on a pay-per-page-view basis."
