I really question the wisdom of thinking that paper books are the real books and ebooks are just marketing. Of course, that's not necessarily Baen's pov.
Btw, I have been discussing this on their site. Clearly they are firmly convinced in the continuing value of giving their books away. I know that it has worked for me in that they have some of my money they never would have had. And I, like many on this forum give a good deal of word of mouth advertising.
While Baen's selection of books aren't to everyone's taste....how much have folks been talking up Tor or Ace.
