Amazon is removing GLBT themed books from their ranking system (making them harder to find unless you search for the specific book).

This is also being discussed here, and here.

I read there has been an apology and an excuse that this was all accidental. Seriously?

You are way behind the times. That situation was resolved.

Perhaps the lasting damage to trust will send more people to local bookstores?

I hope the Amazon debacle sends everyone to their local store. But, if you don't have a local GLBT bookstore go to Giovanni's Room online at http://www.giovannisroom.com/NASApp/store/IndexJsp I'm working, as a volunteer, to get them set up as an integrated LT bookseller.

They are an IndiBound member. Their service is terrific. Turnaround time (for me anyway) is 48 hours or less.

PS

Find it on Amazon (or LT) order it from an IndiBound store.
