Amazon Widget

I just joined the Amazon Associates program. For full disclosure, that means that I'll get a small referral fee if a reader happens to buy a book through clicking on one of the items displayed in the widget on this blog.

This won't in any way affect my personal reviews (as if anything could do that!). I just thought it would be interesting to see if I earn anything this way. Another blogger mentioned earning $300 in a year. Seems like very little effort for a potential return.

I selected Amazon gift cards as my form of payment, and I'll let you know if/when I receive my first $10 card.

I wish you all the luck in the world with this and will be interested in seeing how long it takes for you to get your first card. I have had their ads on my blog from the start 6 months ago and not had one person purchase anything. I believe you can even get some percent of anything they buy once they click into Amazon from your spot. I don't understand why more people don't do this but what do I know? At least I keep trying. Good luck!

Did you have a favorite character, or one that spoke to you the most? Who and why?
The father with the burned hands is the one who stayed with me the most after reading the book.

Did you notice that the day on which the events unfold is actually the same day that Diana, Princess of Wales, died? Does knowing that make any difference in how you see the story? I wouldn't have made the connection if I hadn't just watched some of the coverage of the Royal Wedding. To quote the author, he chose this particular day because his novel is about how ". . .everyday miracles of life and death go unwitnessed in favor of celebrity and sensati…
