Book buying

Thanks to all those who have been using my Amazon.com search-box for their book, music and DVD purchases. I get a small commission whenever you use this box to make a purchase, and it all adds up nicely (meaning an occasional free book for me). In appreciation for these commissions, I have just moved the box towards the top of my sidebar. I hope this doesn’t look too tacky—if you think it does, let me know, and I'll consider moving it down again to a more obscure location.

I like it there. Plus, if it earns you some books- why not!

Keep it there . . . anything that reminds us that we need to buy books is also a good thing, isn't it?

For what it's worth, I try to direct as much of my book-buying activities to Christianbook.com as Amazon.com has "sexual orientation" in its EEO policy, provides health insurance coverage for domestic partners, and diversity training in sexual orientation and gender identity and expression. See here and here.

It may not be the litmus test by which to judge all the companies one may frequent, but when you know it's there, judge for yourself. Just thought I'd point this out.

Blatant Barthian commercialism. Proof text (AV):

"not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind" (1 Pet 5:2).

Hi Guy. Since Barth himself was a committed socialist, I can assure you that there is nothing "Barthian" about my own shameless commercialism (except that it helps me to buy books about Barth). ;-)

Exiled Preacher said...

Hi Ben,

That's alright then, I suppose. Although you could put the "filthy lucre" to better use!

Neo-Thatcherite neo-orthodoxy. What is the world coming to?
