Freak out!

So Googlebooks has scanned lots and lots of books, including two of mine – Learning to Fly and Buried Diamonds.

Some authors have freaked out, and have demanded that Google take them down, especially if their publisher did not hold electronic rights. I've gotten several forwarded emails from authors who think it's terrible.

Others think that this kind of exposure is good. Look at how HarperCollins just let everyone download a PDF of Beautiful Children - a very hot book - for free for a few days.

What do you think?
