No, not that kind of pirate. (But you’re welcome.)
I mean websites that steal books and sell them illegally. There are many reasons not to visit these sites, the most obvious of which is that it’s just plain wrong to steal an author’s work. But you can also find yourself the victim of a nasty computer virus. If you lay down with dogs, you’ll get fleas. And computer viruses. I found this one just today.
If a site seems fishy, it probably is. When in doubt, go to the author’s website, and you’ll be directed to legitimate sellers you can trust.
Just say no to pirates!
