I wouldn't subscribe, but that's an interesting idea. It would entice even more indie authors to go Amazon-exclusive and join KDP Select, which is how their ebooks are available for borrowing through Kindle Owners' Lending Library
. KDP Select authors are paid for each borrowed book (December's royalty was $1.70 per borrow). If borrowing would be allowed more frequently than once a month, that would increase the odds that an author's book would be borrowed!
