You might notice that I don’t link to Amazon for books. My friend Patrick has written a good explanation, but the short version is that linking to Amazon as a singular source for books is like using the G word for web search: it further ensconces the centralization of control that these companies have. Meanwhile, linking to books on IndieBound encourages folks to patronize their local booksellers. My personal favorite here in Olympia is Browsers, but Ann Margaret and I also support Orca Books Cooperative. Find yours, and start building a relationship with the folks that operate it. For books that are in the public domain, I will link to a free version such as on Standard Ebooks.
