I'm not a librarian, but I am a library patron. Your assumption that people who check out ebooks do so instead of purchasing books is flawed. The reason I check out ebooks is because I want to try out a new author or read from an author's backlist. I'm not about to shell out $7-12 on an ebook if I don't know whether or not I'll like the author's books. If I do like the author's books, I usually end up purchasing other books by him or her. I spend a lot of money on ebooks already. If you take away the ability to borrow them from libraries, you'll end up hurting future sales in my opinion. And as of right now I don't think I'll bother with HC books in any form since you seem to be against libraries and consumers. I want no part of a company so short-sighted.
