    One interesting result of King's on-line book sale: it was very slow
    and he sold a good deal fewer copies than he would have sold in a book

    In the last news release I read he was hoping he''d break even on the
    deal sometime "soon".

    I am delighted to see that the way to sell a book is still in a book
