Rogue_librarian, that's a great point for a subscription based ebook model, but would that work for public libraries? If they had to "pay per read" every time a library patron reads a title, how would they make sure they don't go bankrupt?

I just wish there was a way for me to donate my read ebooks to my libraries, or gift ebooks to them with the right to read it first, but of course, a book that costs be 9.99 costs them up to 100 times more if I recall the number correctly that my local library gave me.
