I just wanted to let you know I added something to the website, just for fun.
I’ve got an addon enabled now that let’s me update and track the various books I’m reading.
I’m fairly certain none of you have any interest from day to day in finding out what I’m reading, but the addon is pretty neat in that it lets me track by currently reading, intending to read and finished reading categories. It also keeps all of my entries, with start and finished dates, in a virtual library that anyone can search by visiting the blog.
I could even update the books when I’m done with ratings and mini-reviews, if I were really happy (or pissed at) a certain book.
If I use this diligently, then over time it’ll be pretty fun… for me.
For you, probably not so much. Although in a year from now, I’m sure searching through my reading habits, so long as I keep myself dead honest, should be worth a laugh or two.
For the WordPress bloggers who may agree with me that this sounds really neat, the one I’m using is Now Reading Reloaded 188.8.131.52
I’m not an Amazon Affiliate, so clicking through any of those books in the sidebar will NOT make me any money whatsoever. But I’m thinking that this might be one thing I wouldn’t mind going ahead and setting up as a paid affiliate… Cassie has clients that use the Affiliate program on their websites, and she assures me that if someone were to click through to Amazon from a book I listed, AND were to buy it, I might see a penny or two.
I think I can live with that kind of income and keep my street cred. Maybe.
I’ll think about it.
