Buying Books Online

Many avid readers have long since initiated themselves into the Brave (Not-So-) New World of ordering books through the Internet. It’s certainly convenient, saves a whopping amount of time tracking down difficult-to-find items, often saves you money (even when taking into account shipping charges), and most people seem satisfied with the condition of the items they order this way.

In fact, the ease of ordering books online can become addictive for some of us. Canadian novelist and radio commentator Bill Richardson posted his tongue-in-cheek cautionary tale a few years back, but (again, thanks to the Internet), you can read it now.

P.S. You might consider locating Richardson’s witty 1993 novel for bibliophiles, The Bachelor Brothers’ Bed & Breakfast, and/or the 1995 sequel, The Bachelor Brothers’ Bed & Breakfast Pillow Book. We found out about these delightful books while putting together the Books on Books feature of the blog you’re reading.
