Amazon is offering an enticement to independent bookstores: Sell the Kindle and get a 10 percent cut of the price of the digital books that people buy for it for two years.

Amazon.com Inc. said Wednesday that the program, called “Amazon Source,” will give booksellers a discount when they purchase Kindles for resale. Retailers that don't classify themselves as booksellers get a larger discount on the Kindles but not the 10 percent cut of the books sold on the devices.
