I'm not sure I think it's unethical
to share ebooks with the same reading circle I'd share print ones with (although my reading circle is four or five people, not ten!)
I think it's illegal. I'll grant you that.
But despite the propaganda that I'm supposed to believe an ebook is not just like a book (except when it is), I think I should be able to treat it the same way. I want to be trusted to be only as generous with my ebooks as I ever was with my print books.
I know how many authors and books series I would never
have read, but a friend had shoved the book into my grubby hands and said you have to read this now!
