The Kindle model is OK from a user's point of view, but it's pretty bad from the publisher's end.
The retailer (Amazon) gets to keep 65% of the purchase price.
Imagine the uproar if Apple got to keep 65% of the price of things at the iTunes store - instead the music publisher gets 70% of the price.
