The Pedophile book, Amazon

It's the Pedophile book.

The pages of angry readers go on and on. There are 208 of them to be exact.

I’m talking about the number of pages filled with anger directed at for selling the book, The Pedophile's Guide to Love and Pleasure.

The big question here is (as the AP asks,) should Amazon vet books before they are sold?

If they did, where would they draw the line? Where should they draw the line?

Here's what Amazon told my colleagues at 9NEWS.

"Amazon believes it is censorship not to sell certain books simply because we or others believe their message is objectionable. Amazon does not support or promote hatred or criminal acts, however, we do support the right of every individual to make their own purchasing decisions."
