P.S.
Would you please be so kind as to 'compensate' me after reading this post.

Re-reading your definition of piracy: is it ok not to compensate authors for books you read but did not enjoy?

What I am mostly saying is that our definition of textual piracy is archaic.

What kind of compensation per post are you looking for, a share of the ad revenue from this site based on number of thread views? I mean, what is a forum but a non fictional narrative?

If I was advocating piracy, which I cannot do since piracy does not exist, I might say that it would be ok to not compensate an author for reading a book that you did not enjoy, although the deeper question to you would be why were you reading a book that you did not enjoy?

I have picked up and almost immediately put down thousands of books. I have picked up and taken a slightly longer time to put down thousands more, should I have been compensating the authors of both text sets? Or neither?
