  1. I am an avid reader and book collector. As such, I have 4 large bookcases filled with books. However, I am now looking into moving into a smaller place, where I will be unlikely to be able to have space for all of my books, let alone my continuously expanding collection! Fortunately, ebooks have begun to take off, so now I can begin purchasing regular books as ebooks, while still purchasing the physical books of my favorite series.

    I do have a question though. As someone who has many, MANY books, I am looking at replacing as many of them as I can with ebooks, as they don’t take up physical space. My problem is that I cannot afford to purchase all of my books as ebooks. I am sure that there are illegal electronic editions of many of my books floating around on the internet, however, I am loath to download such, as that would be stealing. I am wondering if anyone out there has ever heard of some kind of service where for a modest fee (maybe $1 or two per book), I could exchange my physical copy of a book for an electronic copy?
