Of course the author doesn't get paid for books sold second hand OR found at the dump but the pennies we make on an e-book are not going to make us rich either.
In the meantime I am gearing up for another move. I have to part with some books(to make room for new finds) and I wish I had the Duxbury Dump nearby in Pittsburgh. But then I just might come home with more books than I dump...and one of them might be my own! And who knows Applebaum's Garage might find it's way to e-book format.
