Re: Out of print

When the internet started, I was promised instant access to anything ever written. Perhaps it's in the same cupboard as the flying car and holidays on the moon.

Many of my books are old - generally first half of the last century - and not on the best of paper. If I want them in a more portable format, I often have to scan them myself, or pay again for a book I already own.
