The many evils of Amazon.com are quite well known. Their unethical business practices, coupled with their partnering with an anti-Christian hate group are sufficient for us to recommend boycotting Jeff Bezos’ crony-capitalist enterprise.
For purchasing books, we have joined the affiliate program of IndieBound.org, which is a network of local, independent bookstores throughout the country. How can you purchase from them?
There are two ways to purchase books through IndieBound.org: (1) The “Buy Here” button on every book page allows readers to purchase the book immediately, and the sale will support the entire network of independent bookstores. (2) By entering a zip code in the “Shop Local” box, readers will be able to choose from among the websites for a list of independent bookstores near them. They will then be transferred to the selected store’s website to complete the purchase. [Learn more here.]
Either way, we benefit from the purchase. And you can purchase locally, not supporting a horrible multi-national conglomerate that sucks money out of your community and puts it into the bank account of Jeff Bezos.
We will no longer link to Amazon.com for books or other products that we do not carry in our bookstore. But we will link, occasionally, to IndieBound.org. If you would like to set up an account so that you can purchase from them, please click on any of the book images below.
Here are some books we do not have in our bookstore. If you click on any of them and make any purchase (of any books!) at IndieBound.org, part of the purchase will benefit Saint Benedict Center via the affiliate program of which we are a part:
They even have Dr. G.C. Dilsaver’s books! Including his latest:
AND books by Dr. David P. Lang, such as his important work, The ‘Circumcision’ Decision: A Catholic Critique:
