I'm with Patricia, but I waited for a poster with more seniority to say it

I've always had a problem with the "Modern Men" stores too. They don't actually sell any.

Yahoo news has a very interesting article about the fact that more than 1 million copies of Suze Orman's "Women & Money" free ebook have been downloaded. Interesting to see that they briefly touched on the debate of offering something for free and if it affects sales or not. In this case, it seemed not to take away from printed sales at all. Maybe more publishers will take notice:

I was going to start a new thread for the Yahoo new article, but I'm not sure there's much point. I thought the quote from the publisher of the 9-11 Report was pretty interesting.
Quote:
"I can tell you that with respect to the `9-11 Report,' the free download did not seem to hurt sales at all," Norton publisher Drake McFeely told The Associated Press on Saturday. "There were people who wanted it quickly, in a less convenient form, and that was clearly a different market from the people who wanted the traditional book."
So what happens when ebooks are no longer "less convenient," as will soon be the case with eink readers and other improved technologies for ebooks. The masses may find ebooks less convenient now, but it just takes that one "iPod of ebooks" (which the Kindle hasn't yet come close to becoming) to change everyone's perception. For the most part, people still think of ebooks as something you read on your computer. I really hope publishing companies don't shy away from using free ebooks as a promotional tool as this view begins to change. I don't think ebooks will ever replace pbooks the way mp3s have mostly replaced CDs.

Don't know if it was the power of Oprah or the power of this forum but a million or more flocked to the download

Suzi O. is a bat fart. Her kind of advice is what caused my father to become a inveterate drunkard.

I accidentally downloaded a sample of "The Secret" while demonstating the wireless feature to a friend. After I read the first sentence I started to sneeze and convulse violently and It wouldn't stop until I ran my kindle through the Hobart.
