Ms. Sanford,

I wish you success with your book. But I don't feel that lisnews is the place to promote your book. Librarians tend to get buried under book ads, catalogs and the like during their working life anyway.

Second, AIG and Google are not monopolies in the colloquial sense or the legal sense. They are (or were) just the big dogs.
