TITLE: You No Buy, You Make Me Sad
AUTHOR: William J Wood Jr.
ISBN: 978-1973246305

"You no buy, you make me sad," said the girls outside the temples of Angkor Wat, selling their tourist curios.

Is the website yours Username Taken?
Yes it is.

Please note that currently I have no affiliation with any book vendors (i.e. Amazon), so currently I make nothing from book sales. In the future . . .
Who needs amazon? Go to IBC and buy a bad photocopy for $1.50 :-)
