Get your local retail on

July 2nd, 2004 § Four comments

I’ve added a new feature to this site. Under the list of books I’ve read recently, you can now choose whether each book’s link points to Amazon; Powell’s, a huge independent bookstore in Portland, Oregon; or Book Sense, a service that directs you to your nearest independent bookstore. The default is still Amazon, since that usually has the most information, but I thought I’d help out those of you who would rather not shop there.

I’ve been making some other changes as well, most of which are related to posting comments. The comment preview page is a little whacked right now; let me know if anything else looks broken.

    yeah, I’m getting “an error occurred while processing this directive” at the bottom of the page after your fitst Euro trip entry. In the land of retail “directive” is the resource we turn to make sure we keep the look of the stores mind numbingly similar. Wish I could tell my manager’s what your page is telling me.

    Oops. Stupid mistake on my part. It’s fixed now. You should be nicer to your managers than my page was to you.

    I liked it better when a new window opened to view and post comments.

  • Jeff says:

    Hmmmm. I’ll take that under advisement. Anyone else have a strong preference either way?

What’s this?
