They mention Amazon reviews. I get frustrated with them, because they either turn out to be bashing sessions or they glow so brightly they must be plants.

Awhile ago, it was revealed that many reviews were from the authors themselves

I stopped doing business with Amazon when they discontinued our affiliate arrangement due to our state imposing a sales tax on them. I use Barnes and Noble for most books, and I try to buy gifts that are hand made by artists I know or who are local.

If you buy from abebooks.com, you support local bookstores
