I read a lot and the only way I would opt for such a program is if it's all part of my Amazon Prime membership and that price stays at the current $79/yr. I spend not a lot, most years between $12k-$15k annually. But little of that is for ebooks which I buy from other sources. I currently won't buy ANY of the so-called "Agency 6" group of the biggest publishers that account from something like 90% of the titles published since they apparently colluded with Apple to fix prices on ebooks (why were ONLY ebooks part of the new model? I think we all know why.) So this limits my buying options. I've owned 11-Kindles since the first one. Well, it's because there are enough readers in my family that it seems we just keep buying new models. hahaha... Unless "Price Fix 6 + One", errr, Agency 6 titles are in this new model and it's included in our Amazon Prime membership AND that does not increase based on how many Kindles are on my account (ie additional Kindles don't require another Prime membership...I forget the current limit but there is one so we are always rotating our Kindles on and off the account but we also spend a fair amount annually with Amazon so nobody is losing here). We love Amazon but at the same time are not looking to add yet another fixed monthly cost we cannot reduce if needed based on our other financial needs. Even $50/mo can matter if you have learned the value of saving for things you want. We already save for unexpected needs but still know the importance of saving, a lost art in the me-me-me-now-now-now world in which we live.
