  • Reading: Download either the ePub or PDF version of the free ebook, Publishing with iBooks Author, which is in the Dropbox readings folder (Publishing_with_iBooks_Author.epub or Publishing_with_iBooks_Author.pdf) and review the contents and then read Chapters 1 (Tour) and Chapter 2 (Book Building Basics). (You can also get the book directly from O'Reilly: http://shop.oreilly.com/product/0636920025597.do. Note that the book focuses on iBooks Author 1.0.
  • Reading Response: Rather than write about the content of this resource, consider the fact that O'Reilly makes the book available for free, with no DRM (Digital Rights Management). What are the advantages for O'Reilly? For readers (besides the obvious, that it's free)? For the authors? Is a "gift economy" sustainable? Why or why not?
