O’Reilly’s new Safari service is a good idea. I think it has the potential to be fairly successful and being able to access five books over the web for $10 a month seems like a decent price point. From O’Reilly’s perspective the revenue generation potential looks to be pretty good as well considering there’s an initial set up cost, but no appreciable cost per book offered as there are with printed copies. Personally, I like owning actual books, but this is certainly worth looking at.
