I hope this isn't too far off-topic...

I have read with interested about Aaron Lynch's and Richard Brodie's
books and I'm sure others of you are working on books, too.

Is anyone publishing books yet on the Web? I assume that authors
receive only a few bucks when I buy a $20 book at Borders and that
the rest goes to paper salesmen, printers, editors, trucking companies,
fuel companies, store owners and managers, shopping mall owners, etc.

Wouldn't it be more efficient for me to give you $2 or $3 charged to my credit
card or ATM card to receive your book via email or secure web download?

I really enjoy reading stuff on the screen of my laptop... Maybe not many
agree with this, but there must be enough others who feel as I do to make this
economically viable...
