I'm in chapter 6, and when I try to run the application, the images of the books in the upper right corner aren't showing up.

                       <div>
                            <Ad
                                url="https://ifelse.io/book"
                                imageUrl="/static/assets/ads/ria.png"
                            />
                            <Ad
                                url="https://ifelse.io/book"
                                imageUrl="/static/assets/ads/orly.jpg"
                            />
                        </div>


From googling around, it looks like browsers don't allow these kinds of images to be displayed directly from the file system for security purposes.

Thanks for reporting this. Can you give more context so I can make sure the right people see this?

Thank you.

hey there! Are you using an ad blocker of any kind? Could be that it thinks those images are "real" ads - can you send a screenshot of your network tools to see what's going on there? Guessing that's the culprit but would need to see that to be sure. I'm also tracking these issues on github at https://github.com/react-in-action/letters-social if you want to open an issue there smilie
