“We only choose quality independent authors so you can be sure what you’re buying is good. Plus, you decide how much these books are worth. Great reads delivered cheaply without killing a single tree? That’s something everybody can feel good about.”

Here we go. We should have all kinds of book-buying arrangements. Curious to see how this one shakes out.
