Blogs and other revelations…

I followed my sister Rita’s blog today at http://www.jacksonsadventures.com. We talked about her new book, Jackson’s Aviation Adventure, and how, on the Amazon page where people purchase and/or review the book, she could see “other books [her customers] viewed or purchased.” One of the other books viewed was, “Crabby McPoopy-Pants Figures It Out.” Rita was a little chagrined at such a title being associated with hers (I loved it!), and wondered whether authors should be allowed to control such associations on Amazon.com. I said, “You want to control what other books your customers read? Sorry, that’s a government job.”
