Rather spiffy, although they only carry non-perishables. Not a real problem there, but it would possibly mean saving a few cents if we get free shipping and no tax.

At least I don't think tax is charged... Not for maryland, anyhow?

Speaking of no tax, Virginia's having their first Sales Tax Holiday.

In 2006, the Sales Tax Holiday will begin at 12:01 a.m. on Friday, August 4, 2006 and end at midnight on Sunday, August 6, 2006.

During Virginia's Sales Tax Holiday, purchases of school supplies selling for $20 or less per item, and articles of clothing, including footwear, selling for $100 or less per item, will be exempt from sales tax. All retailers selling these items MUST participate in the Sales Tax Holiday. Sales tax exemptions do not apply to items selling for more than the amounts listed.

More information here: http://www.tax.virginia.gov/site.cfm?alias=STHoliday

DC's also doing a tax holiday: http://newsroom.dc.gov/show.aspx/agency/otr/section/2/release/8236

(Washington, DC) The District of Columbia will offer a Sales Tax Holiday beginning 12:01 am Saturday, August 5 through midnight Sunday, August 13, 2006, to provide buyers an exemption from the 5.75 percent sales tax for shoes, clothing, and accessory items. The exemption covers each item costing $100 or less.

As Google put thousands of public domain books online Thursday, Amazon.com responded by announcing plans to allow people to read books on the Web.

Meanwhile, Random House, the world's largest publisher of trade books, said it had come up with a business model for allowing people to pay to view its books on the Internet.

Amazon's new "Amazon Pages" program will let people purchase online access to anywhere from a few pages of a book to an entire work. The e-commerce company also announced a program called "Amazon Upgrade" that will let customers pay extra to be able to access books electronically that they've had shipped to them in printed form.

...you know, now that I think about it, it might work. Apple's iTunes store has been highly successful. I think, some part because of the much lower cost, and the ability to chose select songs... and this would do the same for books. Although, the thing is, I wouldn't participate in it, like I don't buy songs off the iTunes music store, because I can get them elsewhere for even cheaper - similar to eBooks.

So, I bring to you, my first poll for a long while:
[Poll #604710]
