Somebody has on his Rainbow Glasses and I fear he will get rained on. I’m willing to lend him my Jaded ones.
According to The Manchester Journal, Tom Pope, has written The Trouble with Wisdom and will sell it for less than it costs him to print. He does, however, intend to make money on his book.
You can buy his book at his website or in a store that has a Print On Demand machine. You pay $5. When you finish, you pass it on to someone, who goes to Pope’s website and pays him $5 and then signs their name in the book. When that person finishes the book, she passes it on to someone else, who goes to Pope’s website and pays him $5 and so on. When the book is too worn out to pass on, the last person reading it tears out the signature page and sends it to Pope who posts it on his website. Voila. He figures he can make probably $30 per book through these readers who voluntarily pay to lease his book.
Anybody remember music sharing on the Internet? Anybody else see the need for some new glasses for Tom Pope? Mine aren’t pink with sparkles, but I think they’ll help. ‘Course, it could be that I’m from Texas and we don’t give away our horse for a wink and a promise.
