First P-Books, then E-Books, and now HTML Books. It's a new concept from Web publishing pioneer Jean-Thomas Cullen (online since 1996; see: First True Ebooks Online). Each HTML Book or Novel is published online, free to read, with optional buy links on each page for the e-book and p-book editions. No fuss, no muss, no obligation, no cookies, not even a breath mint. Think of it as a bookstore metaphor. You can enter free, sit all day and read free, and if you wish, optionally, you can buy a book you like. No different from sitting in the library or at Barnes & Noble. Read-a-Latte means: for the price of a cup of coffee (which is gone in a few minutes) you can buy a book that will stay with you for a lifetime. Each of the four books above is an example, so click a link and follow the trail to reader happiness.
