Amazon associates program is back!

As you may recall, for some time my book reviews looked a lot jazzier than they do now. Each review had a picture of the book’s cover, compliments of Amazon. And if you clicked on the picture and actually bought the book, I got a small referral fee—and it cost you nothing extra. Win, win. Then came the brouhaha over Connecticut sales tax and Amazon shut down the associates program in the state. Now it’s back. Actually, it’s been back for some time, but I just found out about its reincarnation.

I’ve never junked up this blog with ads, but I feel differently about the Amazon program. First of all, it improves the look of the blog. Second, I get a few bucks each month if you have a U.S. Amazon account and either buy a book I reviewed by clicking on its image or if you use the search box on the right-hand side bar and buy anything your heart desires from Amazon. It can be a book, a phone or tablet, towels, skis, pet supplies—you name it. Amazon will thank me each month with a small deposit to my checking account. And I will have another incentive to keep on blogging.

Right now Amazon is running a promotion for a 30-day free trial to Amazon Prime. Here’s the link.
