Here is a very interesting development I picked up from Information Week.

Publisher McGraw Hill Beta Book program may be just the thing you're looking

MKR Comments:

If this is the trend, soon there would be chaos in publishing industry. Some
of the publishers are likely to run into rough financial seas, especially

Next in line, in my judgement, are the magazines who may lose readership.
Already there are ezines.

Would like to watch developments with interest.
