Review of “End this wicked marriage”

by Neil Rickert

UPDATE:

I have added a comment about what apparently happened. And that seems to clear up the puzzle.

END OF UPDATE

This started as a book review. But it has become a puzzle.

Jerry Gramckow is the author of a Kindle book “End this wicked marriage: why Evangelical Christianity needs to divorce itself from the Republican Party”. I learned about the book on Monday, from Jerry’s blog.

But here’s the puzzle. Jerry’s blog has disappeared. It now gives me a 404 (not found) when I try to pull up that page. So I searched for the book title on Amazon, and that too has disappeared.

I still have my copy of the book on my Kindle. I hope that doesn’t disappear, too. Amazon has been known to pull books, though they got many complaints when they last tried this. Perhaps they will let me keep it. I actually have a second Kindle. The one where I read this book is a paperwhite (an e-ink version). My second Kindle is a fire tablet. Checking my library there, the book did show up. And I was still able to download it. So Amazon actually still has the book in its database, but it is hiding that book. It looks as if only people who have already acquired it can access it.
