When you can order a thousand books at a time, you can charge whatever 
you want for it. Notice all the disappearing independently owned 
bookstores. The megastores are killing communities and the "pattern 
language" of local culture. Meanwhile, if our book business dies, so 
might the Permaculture Activist magazine. You're free to invest in that 
if you choose. Unless you prefer to "stand strong together" and support 
those who are struggling to serve you.
