Books free on-line

I think Harper has the right idea-- I wouldn't want to read a whole book on-line, but if I read a few pages and liked it, I might buy it on-line...

This seems to be a step in the direction of creating an internet version of the "browsing in a bookstore" phenomenom.

Sure, there may be a few folks who sit down and read the whole thing at the store and never buy it, but most people read a few pages here and there, decide that they like a book, and then buy it.....

Gaiman's analysis is spot-on......
