Today, I decided to setup an Amazon Associate’s account. For the uninitiated, it would mean that any books purchased at Amazon after clinking links on my blog would earn me small gift certificates. The price doesn’t change at all, I’d just get a small kickback to help me buy more books. Unfortunately I live in one of the two states (grr North Carolina!) which Amazon refuses to deal with because of our tax code. Even more strangely, we have a reputation of
prostituting ourselves jumping through hoops to get technology corporations to come here. See this and this.
Oh well. My paltry schemes to get cheap books have failed!

Sorry to hear that. Amazon doesn’t pay out very well anyway so you have to sell a lot to earn a little. Still, a little is better than nothing I guess.
Yeah, I figured getting even a small amount would be nice to subsidize purchases a bit. I may sign up for the WTS program in the future.
Don’t wait to do that. That’s a good deal. I’ve gotten like a dozen books for free out of that one.
