Theodore Cohen (theodorejeromecohen) | 1417 comments I was just out on The Jerusalem Post's Website, checking on the news in the Middle East, when an ad from Barnes & Noble popped up, featuring four of my books. Now, we all know that our movements on the Web are tracked, but this is ridiculous! Why would anyone (app developer, in particular) think an author is going to purchase copies of his own books, much less at retail?!

Dumb, dumber, dumbest!

They don't know you're the author, just that you did something that looks like interest in those books. And you are interested in them. ;-)

Yes, of course you are correct...it fits my "profile." See how dangerous all this online profiling is?!

Well, for my bad side, I browse using 'incognito' windows (;>)

oh, I get that for my book from B& N, the sad part is that the price has been reduced, they're probably sending me a message...
