in reply to Diffusing Knowledge and Fortune to the Less Wise and Less Fortunate Monks.

I propose sending all the books to one person, where the s&h is payed by the sender. This person then redistributes the books to whoever wants one. Aother idea is to get Orielly to sponser this. They would take our money and record how much is in the fund. Then when somone neds a book, they would simply ship a brand new book to the person and subtract fro the fund occordingly. I hope they will be willing to help.

    I like your idea, but I'd hate to be the one with a basement full of books... I doubt a publisher would want to sponsor this since they are in the business of selling books. Funds can also be problematic for managing. There are the nagging questions of who gets a book and why.
