HOW WE LIVE NOW Shortlisted for Community-Wide Reading Program

COVER, How We Live Now

Do you know about those programs in which an entire community or campus or freshman class is encouraged to all read the same book?

Clicks for Causes, Amazon Associates, and a Tiny Bit of Easy Income

Here is an example of an Amazon Associates link:

The brief version of this post: I’m an Amazon Associate and I make a tiny bit of money every time someone buys something on Amazon after clicking one of my links (such as this one: http://www.amazon.com/dp/0312340826/?tag=wwwbelladepau-20). You don’t even need to buy whatever product the link takes you to – anything on Amazon is fair game. But it doesn’t work for me! I can’t use my own links to get those rewards. But I do buy things from Amazon, and I would be happy to use other people’s links, or links associated with good causes, so that they can get a tiny bit of money each time I buy something. Anyone want to send me a link? I’ll also post links here that are relevant in any ways to enlightened views about single people.

Now here’s the more detailed version.
