I don't know if anyone is interested, but if you like science fiction and fantasy, check out www.baen.com . It has two great features for people who want to save money.

1) The Free Library - Is exactly what it is. The authors have put up their full novels on the website that you can read in several formats (internet, on a PDA, rocket e-book, etc). It's a good-sized list.

2) Webscriptions - They put out several books a month, at least 3 new ones and maybe 2 or 3 previously released ones. Each month's worth of books is $10 and you can buy all the back issues you want.

This is great for bibliophiles who want to save money.

For those of you who want to know why on earth authors put their books up on the free library, make sure to check out the free library and read what Eric Flint has to say in "Prime Palaver Letters 1". Then read his offerings... then buy webscriptions... then take over the... nevermind. :)
