I understand the community fears about piracy, as it's the same with any fledgling tech community that is still trying to get widespread and encourage sales to make publishers up output and increase sales of hardware, but this is a little bit ridiculous. We're talking about 50 books, which is no small amount of money, all of which have been read before.

It's not as if I refuse to buy ebooks, as I've already bought a few of his newer ones for her, like Odd Hours. I'm just a stoic believer in fair rights, and I'm one of few that can say he actually plays fair for both parties.

Regardless, it seems that there isn't an easy solution or nobody wants to get creative because of the piracy fears (understandable, but sad,) so I'm just going to have to leave those ones, as she already owns the paper ones so it was just going to end up a bit of a novelty.
