A question about links

As a reflex, I resort to Amazon.ca when linking to books on my blog. I do try to link to the titles on their publishers’ websites, particularly with current books, but with some books, this doesn’t make a lot of sense (or isn’t even possible). I know a lot of American bloggers link to Powells, but I’d like Canadian links whenever possible. And I also know that many people don’t like Amazon for many reasons. And so my question is, is there a better option for catch-all books links? Any feedback would be appreciated.

  1. McNally Robinson is a good indie alternative to Amazon (and Chindigo, for that matter).

    Seconded for McNally Robinson. They have a large selection, and I’ve always had wonderful experiences with them.

    I got a McNally Robinson gift certificate for Christmas, but they closed their local store before I could use it. I used it online instead, and the next morning got an email from a customer service representative telling me that they weren’t going to charge me shipping, because I had originally had the expectation that I could use the gift certificate here in town.

    Thanks for the tip. I’ll go that way from now on!
