For years, Literary Mama has linked all the books mentioned on our site to Amazon, and through their affiliate program the site earns pennies on reader purchases of books via these links. The pennies add up and generate occasional Amazon gift certificates which serve as a token (and thoroughly insufficient) thanks for the volunteer work our editors do.
We’re excited to start 2012 by moving from Amazon to an affiliate program with Powell’s Books in Portland. The program works the same way – reader purchases of books linked on our site will translate into small gift certificates for our editors – but now we’ll be supporting an independent bookstore with unionized employees. I hope you will find the links easy and useful. Please support your fellow writers by shopping Powell’s!
