I’ve been meaning to add an affiliate link for a while, and it is meant to be convenient. Usually Amazon is the way to go, and although I don’t think of Amazon as evil (I tend not to think that businesses possess emotion or anthropomorphic characteristics), right now I do work at an independent bookstore. And I value what independent bookstores offer to their local communities as well as the book-loving population. As such I am adding an Indie Bound affiliate link to this site. Indie Bound is a national organization that promotes local bookstores. According to their website:
IndieBound is a community-oriented movement begun by the independent bookseller members of the American Booksellers Association. It brings together booksellers, readers, indie retailers, local business alliances, and anyone else with a passionate belief that healthy local economies help communities thrive. Supporting local, indie businesses means that dollars, jobs, diversity, choice, and taxes stay local, creating strong, unique communities and happy citizens.
As you know, affiliate links mean that any books purchased by clicking that link on this blog will eventually generate some kind of kick-back for me. I have no idea how much. I certainly do appreciate any purchase you might make from this site. It will be even more exciting to see if anyone buys the books I’ve recommended! So look for the Shop Indie logo on future posts.
