I'm just astonished by the short sighted view that some publishers have. I've gotten so that I don't like reading physical books anymore - I only read ebooks. I love the Harry Potter books, and would be more than happy to purchase an electronic copy of the new one for a reasonable price (up to about US$10). But I won't be able to. Instead I will look to other sources and download the book for free. I will feel guilty that the author is not recieving renumeration for my enjoyment of her book and the publishers will get no money from me. Is this an intelligent business practice? Again, I would much prefer to purchase a reasonably priced ebook.
Sorry for the rant and rave, this sort of outmoded thinking just really irritates me, and loses them money.
