Amazon.com due to that company's recent changes to its privacy practices. The EPIC Bookstore has been part of the Amazon Affiliates program since 1996 as
part of our efforts to make our publications as widely available as possible. The recent changes in Amazon's privacy policy indicate that the online retailer
