Disclaimers

I choose the age levels of books by going to Amazon. If the age is not there or I disagree with it, I go to B&N. If the age is not there or I disagree with it, I choose the age level that I think is appropriate for the book. Generally, if I disagree with the age level chosen by Amazon and/or B&N, I will explain why.

I am in no way stating that that age limit holds for everyone, as each person matures at their own pace, and I cannot be held liable for the age limits, as they are subjective.

While I’ve made every effort to ensure that the information, blurbs, and details of a book on this site are correct, I do not and cannot guarantee that they are, and I therefore cannot be held liable for any mistakes pertaining to book information.
