"Starting with your next billing cycle, the price of bookofjoe will decrease from $1.99/month to $0.99/month."

Above in the headline, an email from Amazon to my Kindle blog subscribers — all six (6) of them.

One-third of my subscriber base emailed me with the news; one — my Beverly Hills correspondent — wrote, "I was thinking I should just pay you and cut them out of the loop :)."

No, no, don't do that: somehow it's more fun going through Amazon.

I mean, they only take 70% off the top.

The other communicant, my Los Angeles bureau chief, wrote, "There goes the retirement fund!"

Ha ha ha.

I'm trying to remember who and where my other four (4) subscribers are: one's in Chicago, one's in Mumbai, and the other two live in the U.S. but I don't know exactly where.

I'd never have known about the new subscription price if I hadn't heard from my readers: Amazon never contacted me.

But I'm OK with that.

I'll toss in a review - but I suspect that come the 15th of November you might be in a position to leverage all six of us into a Kindle Fire contract: Joe TV being the draw.

Given the Jackson trial's coverage of one of your primary meds - perhaps the generic term for Versed should appear in the review. It might draw many more hits? Just a line after:

BOJ is the offspring of Uncle Tungsten and the Hammacher Schlemmer catalog.

Your South Texas subscriber checking in. Hey, your blog is worth it at twice the price! Seriously,I hope all six of us go give you glowing reviews. Maybe by a year from now you will have twelve of us!

Your Chicago subcriber here, or maybe even your only #1 midwest central time zone subscriber. With your "New Contract with Amazon" you will be collecting 3.36 from me yearly instead of the 7.12. This helps my bottom line quite favorably. Therefore with this development I do hereby declare I shall "visit" this Amazon book website and review it quite splendidly and I shall urge all citizens of America to climb aboard and benefit their lives with the insightful creative groupings of news, entertainment, comedy and basically all of world's wonderments I would never have known about all done in the unique fashion that only Book of Joe provides day in and day out, rain or shine, 7 days a week.

Come on people, who's with me?
