New Idea

Report free downloads

If this has previously been suggested, my apologies:

I have one book, a collection on Open Access, that's deliberately free as a PDF download (and priced about $2 above production costs as a paperback).

I don't see any way to find out whether anybody's downloaded the PDF, or if so, how many have.

Is there a function I'm not aware of? Could Lulu offer either details or just a simple running count for free PDF downloads?

Hi Walt, thanks for the suggestion. This is a common request amongst our authors, and its something we're considering for the future. Thanks for using Lulu!
