(Kindle Edition Normalized Pages (KENP) Read)*

Kindle has introduce a new method of payment of royalty to authors who have enrolled their books to Kindle Lenders Library (KLL) and Kindle Owners Lending Library (KOLL) where the readers can borrow and read the books. From this July the authors shall be paid royalty on per read page basis. As to what exactly that means is not clear. If somebody scrolls down a few pages and starts reading after skipping few pages, will that count? There are many similar questions about a computer deciding the meaning of ‘read’.

But as it is, readers pays for entire research. Not just for the page on which conclusion is reached.
