At the request of some (mostly one) student, I put the Amazon.com widget on my blog page. The student wanted me to monetize my site. While I’ve generally shunned advertising, referring readers to good books seemed constructive and met his objection that I hadn’t monetized my blog site. The irony of course is when somebody buys a book that I wrote because I earn almost as much as the royalty amount that I’m paid, which is on the wholesale price of the book not the retail.
While driving students back from an internship trip last Friday, they commented that the widget was too difficult and that I should add a blog page and encourage readers to submit other books. Based on that input, here’s the Suggested Reading List blog page.
Please feel free to recommend a book in the comment section. If I can review it and agree I’ll promote it to the suggested reading list.
