These days when it comes to books and book promotion, a lot of people |(me included) will from time to time, give their work away for free. The general idea is that people will read it, like it, review it and buy more. If that philosophy works, it is a very small minority that write reviews and an even smaller minority who will then but something. In fact, I am not at all sure that this strategy really works. Some people claim giving away books for free is destroying the business altogether. Who knows? In other areas I would say that if something is free, people do not value it. And what about that U2/ Apple mess up with the free album?
So what do you all think?
Are free books killing the book business?
