Yeah, I paid some unghodly sum for my first scientific calculator, only to see the price drop drastically the next week.
I would love for the price to plummet, but right before

As to the reader you envision, I think is it a wonderful idea. The ability to get literature out to people, especially kids, cheaply is quite an honorable goal. The content would be up for debate, since a lot of the PD stuff would not be appreciated by people until they reach an age where "classics" can be appreciated rather than dreaded.
