Lovely post - I enjoyed Celia Fremlin's books too, and remember those Gollancz covers so well.
But I really dropped in to say that I receive far more review copies of books than I could ever read, but I would never dream of selling them! Sometimes I pass them on to someone else who I know wants to read and possibly review, sometimes I give them away, but I'd never try to sell them - it woudl be immoral. I do agree, though, that there is a lot of book recycling going on in the internet.

Review copies come from publishers' marketing budgets presumably. I guess (?!) that the recycled copies on the internet have at least been paid for once.
