Amazon's Ebook The Future of Reading?

newandyh-r Baen Books _are_ DRM free (354 comments)

http://www.baen.com/ sell reasonably priced ebooks and have some free (as in beer) ones. Good start for an SF library, we just need a few more publishers* to follow that example.

... and, of course, for this new device to be able to accept them.

* a good start would be one that does detective stories - that itself might be sufficient to bootstrap ebooks to a larger audience.
