Some time ago, I bought two volumes, each nearly 900 pages and it was very
bulky to carry around when I travel. All I did was to take them to the local
office supply/print place and cut the binding off and fed them to a fast
scanner and in a couple of hours I had a searchable pdf copy.  If I had
waited for the publishers to make pdf copy available, I will be dead and be
in some other world!

Just a few days ago, Amazon is offering free storage space in the cloud and
anything can be stored there and can be accessed from a computer with
Internet connection. World is changing. We have to find a solution for this
issue, which is not new and the whole world is facing. For example, the sale
of music cds and dvds are pl;ummeting and musicians in this country find
that they make most of their money when they do live performance.

Status quo is not a solution. Let us hope the judge book is soon made
available as pdf file fo all of us poor theosophists (most are) can read it
and understand the facts. Facts do help in any situation.

By the way, there is a software model called shareware or freeware. Programs
are made available and the users send in some money as donation since most
want to support the efforts and help others make a living. This should be
tried for theosophical books as well.
