I was a loyal customer of Black Expressions.I loved that there was a place that I could go that had such a large selection of books by African American authors.

Because of this, I was saddened to learn that the website was taken over by Double Day. I decided to just suck it up and deal with it, but after browsing Double Day's website I discovered that they got rid of African American material. There was no Zane, Eric Jerome Dickey, or Carl Weber-all top African American authors.

They could have just cancelled my membership altogether when they took over instead of sending me featured selections of books that I have absolutely no interest in from authors I have never heard of.I have no clue why they chose to wipe out the availability of African American material but it is a shame.

Reviewer is in unhappy mood. Please immediately contact the author of this review to discuss poor customer service of books selection. DoubleDay Book Club needs to read this review and look into the issue (if any) according to poster's claims.

Other people also mentioned books selection in their reviews. You may find this information helpful for further shopping at DoubleDay Book Club.

How very upset also should they took down black expression but I did find something calls Paperback book swap. You swap books back and forth and there's great Books on there.

Black authors lost money bc Black Expressions was stealing the work and not paying authors. It was like a bootleg site for books. Order books via authors' owned websites.

I found out the same thing, and it sading me to know that if it wasn't for black expression most of our black people wouldn't think about reading a book. But since the books read touched us in some way or form has been tooken away. So as I was looking for a site to purchase a good read, I ran across this site called Goodreads it has all of authors from Zane on down!

I feel that Double Day books is very wrong for getting rid of all the African American books. The reason I say that is when I look at Double Day books now all I see is White book writers and I feel that is racist.

Being a black author, I was trying to find a way to reach out to BE. I was an a member from high school to college, but they are no more. I'm greatly saddened.
