like on the streets of a major city, just using those little tiny flash drives you can buy for 10 bucks, so thats 20 bucks profit per sale, and i would sell for as low as 20 bucks

i think that would be a pretty easy sales pitch

'ill sell you 30,000 books for 30 dollars, a whole library for 30 bucks!'

think it'll work? or are people too stupid and lazy to care about ebooks ? also people would have to trust that the books are on the flashdrive......

Good luck prying $30 out of people that are going to look at you as a total con artist.

On the other hand, if you could come up with one item that you could sell and make only $1 profit on, and sell that product to a million people... well, you get the jest of what I'm saying.

i could have a little netbook with me to prove the flash drive contains the 30,000 books, could print out little pamphlets that detail what books are on the drive

More than half of em will look at you with glossy eyes and ask you what is this thing you call "flashdrive". The rest will be so filled with fear of malware, they will scurrying into the sowers to hide behind the rats.

Good luck though - I wish you nothing but success.

Who in their right mind would want 30000 books?

Jesus, most sheeple have never read a book.

Not one without pictures in anyway.

I like it ... but you may want to sell them via an internet site for wider distribution.

LOTS of books, classics, are off of copywrite, so are in the public domain and could legally be sold in such a way.

I would buy a flash drive with that many books on it for sure since there would be dozens on it that I have always wanted to read!!

GREAT IDEA ... you need to DO IT before someone else jumps in!! (pricing at $49.99 + S&H would be a great price)

good luck finding someone without headphones that could listen to you, or not hypnotized on their little touch screens
