I've bought many Baen books and I don't recall that happening to me more than once or twice (edited to add: having it later get offered free, I mean - I think I'd be a bit aggravated too if I inadvertently paid for a book that was already in the Library, but I keep track of what's in there closely enough so I've never done that). I figure it's part of the cost of doing business - and at only five or six bucks a pop, why should I wait on the off chance of a book eventually hitting the Free Library?

I am stingy enough to not emulate the people who make donations for books already available for free, or buy them in hard copy if I don't already have it. But the Free Library has introduced me to quite a few authors whose other works I've subsequently bought from Baen.
