Okay, I usually don’t blog about stuff in the publishing world, but I’m seeing too much going on with the power of Amazon and Kindle and, let’s face it, Banned Books. As an author, I was nervous before, now I’m moving toward frustrated. The power that Amazon is wielding lately with pulling books off Kindle lists and deleting pages of previously downloaded material because it was seen as “inappropriate” material is a form of censoring that I’ve seen once-too-often in history. I am seriously disturbed to see it happening so flagrantly now. I mean, it used to be the quiet censorship of having librarians pulling disturbing books off shelves and me wondering why I couldn’t find them in the catalogs anymore. Now, Amazon is publicly pulling material like a big bully because it can. Hmmmm. We usually assign this sort of behavior to totalitarian governmental models.
