My question in regards to all these "free books" is, do the authors get paid? After all they spend many long hours churning out these books. My daughter is an author and it is suppose to be her income. As I can see it - a thankless task. And as far as price is concerned a few bucks for an ebook is not going to break the bank and it is certainly cheaper than buying the hard copy. I agree with published works that are long past their copy right period (75 years) should be free, but think of all those struggling modern authors trying to make a buck - it is really "stealing". I'm sorry but I'm baised here.
