Amazon enrages authors as it switches to 'pay-per-page' model

Paranoia is its own reward

I don't own a Kindle, so could some kind soul enlighten me?

If I did own a Kindle would it actually record how many pages of each ebook I read, how many times I returned to the particularly subversive page 341, and how much time I spent re-reading that page of 50 Shades of the day? Will it be able to tell whether I really enjoyed it or dozed off or was distracted? And would it beam the summary to the mother ship the moment I step off the plane and switch the flight mode off?

Until now, I have stuck to dead trees for many other reasons, but duly noted.
