How Books and Bookshops Improve Our Mental Health – And Why We Must Protect Them | naked capitalism
If you wonder why I tagged it with “markets”, our local bookstores are markets for our books, too. Especially if you’re self-publishing!
You can still get your “real book” fix at any of the Maui Friends of the Library bookstores:
My debit card was one of those harvested courtesy of Home Depot.
So far, our compromised card count includes:
- My current debit card (courtesy of Home Depot)
- Mine and my wife’s debit cards (courtesy of Target)
- A MasterCard and a debit card (courtesy of T.J. Maxx).
Notice what’s common about the list?
THEY ALL OCCURRED AT BRICK-AND-MORTAR STORES.
We use other cards at many online retailers. Never once has one of those cards been compromised.
So, sorry, B&M retailers: Don’t go whining FUD about how “insecure shopping online is.” Shopping at your stores is what’s insecure.
YOU need to prove your security before I resume shopping with you.
