Another wrong-headed Texan at work.

A) Print is not dead. The WSJ had an article this week on the subject.

B) Ebooks availability for libraries is severely limited due to publisher reticence and outrageous pricing.

C) Judge Wolff says this isn't meant to be a replacement for local brick-and-mortar libraries but an enhancement. How about donating all the money you've raised for your bookless libraries and give that to the actual libraries for enhancement of their digital collections? Seriously, why reinvent the wheel when the infrastructure already exists to get ebooks in the hands of those who can afford ereaders?
