Cory Doctorow to match book donors with schools and libraries

Author Cory Doctorow is planning to start a "matchmaking" service between schools and libraries that would like to receive free copies of his new novel Little Brother and individuals who want to give them.  He mentioned in his podcast last week that he often gets e-mail from readers who enjoyed the free e-editions of his books and want to pay him but not receive a physical copy.  This way sales will still support his work via his publisher, and theoretically the book should reach a lot more than two readers per sale.

I'm sure it'll show up on Boing Boing or Craphound as soon as the matchmaker system is up and running.
