Shameless Capitalism post for Monday

Amazon recently changed their associate policies to give us front men for the mighty Internet retail empire a taste of the Kindle action. So, if you're considering buying a Kindle, or perhaps buying some NY Times bestsellers for the Kindle you already have, could I ask you to do so through this humble site? You can also pick up Newspapers, magazines, and accessories, if you're so inclined.

If the New York Times bestsellers don't interest you, may I recommend some of the following books reviewed here in the recent past?
The Sword of the Lady
Final Blackout
American Caesar
Carnage and Culture
To Lose a Battle
Quartered Safe Out Here

Why would I want a kindle? I read a lot of ebooks, and a cheap used PDA with a backlight would serve me just as well as paying Amazon a lot of $$$, especially since they can also revoke your access to purchased books.

This is true for you. Others, on the other hand, prefer the Kindle, and I don't mind accommodating them. Especially if they can throw a few $ my way.

You know, I never really thought of it this way, but by God, you're right. All of us who run ads for Amazon are really in the book business (with a sideline of music, kitchenware, etc.) except we've outsourced the heavy lifting to Amazon.

I hadn't thought of this in a few years, but one of my original plans for moving out here involved a truckload of used books from Uncle Hugo's. I figured that since there wasn't any store like it in the DC area, there was a niche I could fill. I still have time to do that, but in the meantime, there's Amazon.
