  1. In the market for some new bathroom reading material or for some reason prefer to pay for content that's free (and legal) via the Internet? If so, Reddit has a book just for you.

    Ask Me Anything: Volume One is a collection of what the Reddit editorial team deems are the best Ask Me Anything sessions. Reddit co-founder and executive chairman Alexis Ohanian said in a recent blog post that the nearly 400-page book is filled with AMAs from familiar faces such as Bette Midler, Louis C.K., Chris Rock, Martha Stewart, Bill Gates, Ronda Rousey and Spike Lee, just to name a few.

    The volume isn't dedicated solely to celebrities and public figures, however, as it includes AMAs from everyday folk including a Waffle House employee and a nuclear missile operator. Illustrations are provided by u/youngluck.

    The hardcover AMA book will set you back $34.99 over on Amazon (or just $4.99 if you prefer a digital copy for your Kindle). It's certainly not for everybody considering it's all free online but if you're looking for an interesting coffee table book, it may be worth a look.

    Reddit said they only printed 10,000 copies so if you want one, I wouldn't waste much time (and if it makes you feel any better, some of the proceeds will be going to charity).

    Do you think Reddit is in the wrong for trying to make money off its user-generated content? Is $35 too much to ask for a hardback copy? Chime in with your thoughts in the comments section below.

    You've gotta make money off something and seeing Reddit relies on it's users to generate income (I'd assume) then I'd say milk them for all their worth.
