Book Purchase Warning

Be careful when ordering Books from "hotbooksale.com". I ordered a book yesterday and this morning I received an email telling me that I was enrolled in their Best Brands Value Club (a fee based service). I went to the site and cancelled this unsolicited membership. I need to be more careful when agreeing to "Terms of Service" items. I believe this is where they caught me. Again, don't know if its a scam, but certainly its sneaky!

A Nice Link

Thanks for the http://www.bewrite.net link. I like the fact that there is no DRM. I have over 117 books in my Sony Pocket Reader and not one of them contains a DRM. I will never buy a book that contains DRM. Just one of my quirks. There are too many good books without DRM to go through the hassel.
