I think you went in the wrong direction in getting participents for the 'New Books' show... Instead of asking the old fogies (with a vested financial interest) you should be asking the next generation about this. (I am 75, but I have a 20 year old son- so I think I have some idea of what is happening.) He spends a lot of time on his laptop. Besides reading for school, he watches Anime and Dojins (I think these are the downloadable versions of the comics (Manga?). These are provided by various fan clubs.
I just added 2 titles to my church groups reading list by providing titles for Google search for the downloads: "Flatland" (in html format) and "The Cold Equations" in pdf format -to be read by Adobe. Admitedly, these are short stories (> 10 pages each) and were written a very long time ago.
I hope that a lot of the distribution will be along the ideas of the Free Software foundation. In reguard to Text books, authors and editors should probably be rewarded by the Educational Institutions - with the costs folded into Tuition charges.
