What’s Wrong With The Internet? It Must Be Broken! - Caren A Adams  After months of scouring the internet, I could not put my hands on the 2 million links various search engines said were available to do my book promotions.  First, let me say I perceive myself as an intermediate user of the internet, but maybe my perception was misguided as I searched and realized I couldn’t put my pointer on the links I wanted.
