Well, yes, you should.  If I've released my book as "open source" under
the GPL, then by contract I have specifically authorized you to
repackage it and sell it in any form you want so long as you don't alter
my work.  Want you cannot do is claim that the original work is yours.
And you can't prevent anyone else from taking that same book and
repackaging it and selling it.

You just don't understand the GPL.
