Does it matter to you which site revìewers select.? Do you have a preference?

Deb --- Great question! I'd most prefer people to pick the sites that are easiest for them. So, if you already have an account with one, that's the one where you should review!

That said, I listed the other retailers in order from the ones I feel most confident about selling books at to the ones I feel least confident about selling books at (although the top three are somewhat interchangeable). So, if you were just being nice and making my day, I'd choose Barnes & Noble, Google Play, or iTunes.

Thanks for asking! And thanks to everyone who has already kindly left a review!

I didnt have an account with any, which is why I asked. I chose Barnes and Noble. The comment box had some weirdness in formatting, and I finally got impatient with and sort of just ended the review more abrùptly than otherwise would have. it was good to read this, as we are starting our new homestead, so the mapping and planning chapters are helpful. Ive been wandering around the property trying to determine sun/shade patterns, but not considered traffic patterns..You've sythesized the idea of zones and pathways into an easy to grasp concept. This one might be my favorite of the whole bunch.
