If anyone can show me a person who has internet access to pirate but doesn't have internet access to download any of the massive quantity of free, high quality reading material legally and easily available, I'll start listening to all the arguments about a right to an education and starving minds and books should be legally free. Until then? Guess what. Books ARE legally free. Thousands and thousands of excellent books, and thousands and thousands of crappy books, and thousands of books in the middle. The problem is that these aren't the exact book you want. Someone has taken the time and effort to create a book that sounds like exactly what you want, and you don't choose to accept substitution. I understand that. But don't punish that person by stealing their efforts. Pay them. And if it turns out the book wasn't quite what you expected? Oh well. That's life, sometimes.
