I came across a blog post today that I happen to agree with. Not everyone will.

Nonetheless, I decided to share it and let you make up your own mind.

**For some known-only-to-Wordpress (!) reason, the “reblog” option on the website didn’t work, so following is the intro with a link to read the remaining post.**

Also, the books themselves are not disappearing, they’re not just being published anymore. The originals & the books that were published up to this past year will still be in existence. & GUESS WHAT.

Ending the publication of these books just made them VERY VALUABLE.
