Reconsider your Amazon Shopping

There was alarming news across twitter and the blog-world today.  It appears that Amazon is selling a book that is SO offensive, inappropriate -- & just plain wrong.  It's incredible to think that they thought they could get away with selling this without any repercussions.  If you are a parent, or love a child, you may take particular offense, and want to show Amazon where you stand on this issue.  Many people are contacting Amazon to let them know that they will no longer be shopping with them.  You can read more detailed information on the sites listed below.

Rachel at No. 17 Cherry Tree Lane has done her homework, and you will find good information there about contacting Amazon should you choose to make your voice heard.

Thanks for reading.  Hug your children extra tight tonight. 

Thursday Morning NOTE:  In all fairness, I must also share the e-response that I received from Amazon this morning.

This book is no longer available for sale.  
Thank you for your recent inquiry. Did I solve your problem? If yes, click here".....etc.

Thankful for their decision.  Still really disappointed in their original choice.

Even more disappointed (days later) to hear that there are other questionable materials on sale at Amazon.  They have not won me back.

FYI - Anderson Cooper seems to have his finger on the pulse of what is going on.
