Re: L&L Publishing eBooks

We have been promised by an L & L spokesman that the sales of the books will allow them the resources to fund new and exciting projects, and that this isn't just an attempt to burn the lot before packing up the tents. Brad, You hate it when people put words in your mouth and twist around what y...

Re: L&L Publishing eBooks

IMHO, the key (as in most cases) is pricing. People complain all the time that Kindle ebooks cost too much in comparison with the hard copies. If they cost close to the same, I still think that many are going to choose the physical product. This is price fixing that the publisher's are doing. It's ...

Re: L&L Publishing eBooks

Brad,

Roger stated the value dropped to $0 because it was on a torrent site. I just informed him that using his logic, it dropped to $0 years ago because it's been out there for a long time. It's not propaganda - just an obvious truth.

Not all of them. Some of the more recent books were created digitally and didn't need to be scanned.
