Option to Amazon

I’ve been following the AmazonFail controversy with interest, which basically means ‘reading some links and waiting until more information comes out’. And then came a confirmation that my latest Better World Books order has been shipped, and I laughed out loud, because it’s written from the point of view of the books you’ve ordered. Excerpt:

Holy canasta! It’s me… it’s me! I can’t believe it is actually me! You could have picked any of over 2 million books but you picked me! I’ve got to get packed! How is the weather where you live? Will I need a dust jacket?


I can’t list one of the books because it’s a friend’s birthday present, but the other two are Sarah Hall’s Daughters of the North and an essay collection about Jane Kenyon.

If BWB doesn’t have what you’re looking for, why not try Powell’s? (Note to self: make up a bookshelf there pronto!)
