Report: Amazon to Offer Netflix-Like Service for Books?

Amazon dot com(SEATTLE) -- Amazon is thinking of starting a rental service for electronic books. Just as Netflix changed the way people rented movies, Amazon is proposing changing the way people rent books.

Details about the project are limited, but The Wall Street Journal reports that the rental books would probably be older works, and you could only check out a limited number of books at one time.  

Amazon is reportedly in talks with publishers about the idea.
