A Message to You from

Amazon and This Web Site

Amazon Books requires all "associates" to carry the following message verbatim (saving the insertion of our web-site name). We have no problem with that, nor should you, but it's our policy to be as up-front about things as civilized manners will allow. So now you know.

Amazon's Message is pleased to have this web site in the family of associates. We've agreed to ship books and provide customer service for orders we receive through special links on this web site. associates list selected books in an editorial context that helps you choose the right books. We encourage you to visit this site often to see what new books they've selected for you.

Thank you for shopping with an associate.

P.S. We guarantee you the same high level of customer service you would receive at If you have a question about an order you've placed, please don't hesitate to contact us.

And Our Message

By and large, we do not "select books for you"; you select books for you--we help by listing them for your selection. All clear? OK. Now back to the bookstore page.
