"I claim to love books; and, more than that, to love bookshops. Yet for eight years I have poured money into a company that many booksellers regard as the greatest threat to their survival.... It is the time of year to make resolutions. You could resolve to eat less, or jog more. Or you could join me in making a simple pledge: to buy every book you read next year from a bookshop. I don't know about you, but Amazon has had quite enough of my money already."
--Laura Freeman in a piece for the Daily Mail headlined "Why I'm boycotting Amazon"
