    Coincidentally I had called Sam Weller's last week to inquire about their book ordering and gift policy (sending books to Christmas recipients). I wanted to avoid going through big corporate book chains like Barnes and Noble. Now I can add Amazon to my list. I am even more committed now to working with Sam Weller's when I decide to order several books and mail them to my friends for Christmas.

    Rather than boycott, why not help ABE find a new payments processor. This effort seems misguided. The assumption that if Amazon owns them, they ought to be able to use Amazon's payment processor to take payments is naive.

    This is sad. Amazon is simply too big at this point. We all lose when competition is eventually driven/forced out of business.

    I’ve noticed when I buy electronics on amazon they break faster. And I’m out of luck. If I buy from Best Buy or Walmart or Target I can take them in and they work with me. We’re headed towards a time where we will regularly be without options.
