Quick note to mention that I’m updating my Reading List page from using Amazon affiliate links to instead linking up reviews or other relevant discussion.
Two reasons for this:
First, I’m a proponent of supporting local, independent booksellers and I feel that directing readers to Amazon undermines that.
Second, the Amazon links were a convenient way to direct readers to book summaries and reviews. The affiliate links were a “bonus,” but one that never actually paid off. So why bother? There are other sources of more useful reviews. (For example, check out the 1937 review of The Hobbit by C.S. Lewis!)
Replacing older links will be an ongoing project, so check back in occasionally for new book recommendations as well as new review links.
