All Systems Go: The Newly Emerging Infrastructure to Support Free Books
Ben Crowell Light and MatterDec 19, 2005

Some good discussion of the movement toward free books (or 'open source books'), with references to standbys like textbookrevolution.org and lulu.com (which I intend to use in the near future), wikibooks, and more. The author also considers the problem of "making contact" between books and their readers, exploring options such as Google Print ("about as successful as attempts to mate a Klingon with a Ferengi").
