    Thanks for highlighting my piece on ad-supported books, Joyce! It's an interesting experiment. Whether or not it will transform publishing remains to be seen, but with or without ad-supported books, the industry is undergoing major upheaval.

    I just turned in a piece for my column in Searcher magazine on new rights and business models for books. Developments include the following: Amazon has announced programs that will let you buy electronic books by the slice and get digital copies of printed books for a nominal fee; O'Reilly's Safari lets you read digital books for a fixed monthly fee; Random House will be making books available on a pay-per-view basis; and more. I just hope that authors fare better under the new models than we've been doing. In order to make that happen, we need to be aware and move quickly.
