Boycott! Why I’m Not Buying Books from Amazon Anymore

In the last few weeks, I’ve seen more and more articles about the condition Amazon’s workers have to contend with while filling orders—alongside articles about Jeff Bezos’ astronomical wealth. Because I don’t think anyone should be that rich at the expense of their worker’s health and safety, I have decided that I will boycott Amazon from here on out.

I plan to buy my books from Powell’s, Barnes & Noble, Half Price Books, or independent booksellers until Bezos changes his business’s practices. Anything else I might have purchased from them I will source from somewhere else.

It might not do much, but I hope that other readers will see this post and think about boycotting Amazon, too.
