So Long, Amazon.com

Two months ago, I wrote about the Internet sales tax bill sitting on Illinois Governor Pat Quinn's desk. Today he signed that bill, and the Chicago Tribune sent me an e-mail alert at 2:04 PM. At 5:31 PM, I received an e-mail from Amazon.com titled "Notice of Contract Termination Due to New Illinois Law." Unless I relocate to another state before April 15, my affiliation with Amazon.com and the millions tens of dollars in commission that it earns for me annually will end. I guess I'll have to find a new way to illustrate Book Challenge 2011.
