I've often wished that books and music were distributed on a shareware basis. I'd happily have paid a buck apiece for each song and book I liked enough to listen to/read more than twice - including the books I bought used - and the author would still make more than they do now, assuming zero cost of production (ebooks). Not only that, but I could voluntarily pay extra for books like "Permutation City" or "True Names".
