For many people, book pricing can make the difference between buying
and checking out of the library.  Most people will probably always
use the library for some books and buy others.

Nobody seems to want e-books; for the customer they seem to combine
the worst features of a web site and a book (crummy-looking text,
costs a lot), while for the publisher they combine the best features
of a web site and a book (no printer's bill, high per-unit price).
e-books are a one-sided bargain.

Anyway, see you at the party on Wednesday?
