Your complaints have been heard—Amazon gave it a thumbs up! You can now use your Amazon Associates id within a blog widget, and take back a small fraction of the $1/day all 200 or so blog widgets are making me. You don’t even need to have a paid account to run off with my haypence. That’s how generous I am.
(Frankly, I’d rather not to link to Amazon, but it’s a requirement if I use their cover image. Of course the text links go to your library or the book itself.)
