I would add that referring the reader to other books for more information belongs in the references section, not the footnotes.

I saw it a bit as marketing, true, but this is part of a series so it didn't really bug as much as it normally would have. Also I'm not sure how much was her decision and how much was the series editor.

I guess my feeling is that, since footnotes disrupt the flow of reading, they ought to enhance the information, not distract from it. So that would really bug me.

Ah, the books weren't mentioned in the footnotes. Footnotes were just links to source articles or listing of a book title.
