08/25/2005 Archived Entry: "Wolfesblog bookstore updated"
I'VE JUST COMPLETED A MAJOR UPDATE OF THE WOLFESBLOG BOOK STORE.
I hope you'll explore, use, and enjoy. Most of the links go to Amazon.com. Some go directly to the books' publishers. And in several cases, you have a choice of where to purchase.
I've been rather mad at Amazon.com, which is why I hadn't updated the store in a while. Among other things, Amazon severely broke a text-link creating system that didn't need fixing, then changed their online reporting to make it more difficult to tell if the click-throughs are actually being credited to Wolfesblog. That's not to mention their diminished compensation levels. Or their recent hints that they may at some future time dump their so-far excellent privacy standards.
If visitors use the bookstore, I'll promise to add new items more regularly. If the store draws little or no interest, I'll let it die and will just keep the Amazon.com search link that gives credit to Wolfesblog when you go in and find books of your own.
If you want to do a good deed with very little trouble and no sacrifice to yourself, just use a Wolfesblog link any time you enter Amazon.com. A small percentage of every purchase you make will go to support this blog (and we will receive NO personal information about you from Amazon.)
