You can't really do this so easily with books, but my favourite tactic with music is to rampantly pirate an artists output, then go up to them at a gig and press a wad of cash into their hand with an apologetic smile :)

Now that's cutting out the middleman!

Yeah, it's taking money out of the hands of all those who worked to support the artist and help them get on that stage.
