John Grisham releases 'The Firm,' 22 other titles as e-books

Just ran across this article this morning. Thought it might be of interest to John Grisham fans.

Not exactly. He said he thought $9.95 for a new ebook was too low a price.

JK Rowling opposes ebooks in principle, not on price.

Considering all these authors' books have been on the darknet for years, all they've accomplished by not e-publishing them sooner is to lose out on legitimate sales. I really don't understand their hesitation.

Yes, cause the guy doesn't make enough money from his books.
