When Greed Becomes Obscene.

Some of you are probably just finding out that there is a problem posting a review for a book you have just read. Reviews can now only be attached to the site of your home Amazon account and only if you have spent $50 or whatever in your local currency in the past 12 months. There has to be x amount of cash spent by visa or debit card on any site in order to review there. How many ordinary readers spend that amount in one year? How much money does it take to satisfy the greed of an extremely rich man? I guess that well has no bottom.

Reviews are a writer’s life blood. Why try to strangle us? We get a pitiful amount in royalties anyway, with Amazon taking the lions share and more. A sad, sad day.
