Forget movies, ebook downloads are set to be the next big service. Kindle kings Amazon are said to be planning a electronic book library with a range of titles on offer similar to Netflix service for movies, reports the Wall Street Journal.

Amazon.com is said to be discussing the move with several book publishers, although some are said to be less than enthusiastic about the possibility, say sources, which would see book worms have ongoing access to a mass of titles for a set fee rather than buying outright. 
Several publishers believe such a library service could lower the value of books and strain relationships with other retailers, who are already irked with Amazon increasing prowess in the industry, which has lead to the slow demise of the hard copy. 
The ebook library would be made available to Amazon Prime members, who pay $79 a year for unlimited access to movies and TV content although sources say the e-tailer would put a cap on the number of titles for this service. 
But its not just ebooks it is looking to get deeper into – the online giant is also revving up its social networking and gaming industry, and have created a Social Games division to ramp up its offering and develop new titles to compete against Zenga and Facebook.
