While I enjoy tweeting book recommendations and posting book lists, it takes a tremendous amount of time — it's not a hobby, it's a part-time business. Like many businesses, I'm counting on the holiday season to pay the bills. That's where you come in:

In exchange for all my free book recommendations, I only ask that you please go to Amazon through my site for your holiday shopping. And not just books, but anything Amazon sells (DVDs, iPods, toys, anything). (Already done with your holiday shopping? Please keep us in mind for future purchases.)

If you value my book recommendations enough to do this simple little thing, I'll be able to bring you another year of book recommendations.

Thanks for listening and happy holidays.

This sounds like a fair trade:
Take me to Amazon now and I'll do some shopping.

This sounds like a fair trade, but I'm not ready to shop now:
Tell me how I can support you through Amazon later.
