How it works
Authors and publishers choose a funding goal. Book lovers chip in to meet it.
Gluejar works with rights holders to determine a good price for ungluing their book: one that will compensate them for past work and
replace future royalties. Readers worldwide can chip in to fund their favorite books on our upcoming web site unglue.it. When we meet the rights holders' goals, they will be paid in exchange for making their works available under a Creative Commons license. Everyone will then be able read and share the book freely: with no cost, and no DRM.
Readers want ebooks that are convenient and simple. Authors and publishers deserve to be paid for their hard work. At Gluejar, we get that -- just like in this multiple-exposure photograph -- different people's perspectives on ebooks need to combine into one elegant whole.
