Seriously, authors could just put up their books online for free and let companies have advertisements play before someone can have access to the book like with Youtube. If the book is good they could gain money easily that way.
And I agree, burrowing shouldn’t cost something, or at least not that much. If I want to take out a book out of the library, sure I have to pay a fee of two to three dollars per year! for our local library. Huge difference in price.
