Updated Recommended Reading
Now that we’ve completed one of our major writing projects and are on winter break from another writing-intensive project, I’ve spent the past few weeks catching up on some reading. I keep a both a pile of unread books/articles as well as a list of books that I want read. When the pile gets low I go to the list to replinish the pile. We often share reading recommendations amongst ourselves.
All of this reading has made us interested in updating our old recommended reading list with a new reading list. This time we’ve decided to use Amazon’s astore to do this since it makes adding, updating, and categorizing our list quick and easy. You can find the permalink on the righthand side of our blog. We’ll try to keep it updated as much as possible so you know what we’ve read and thought worthy enough to pass along. If you have suggestions of great books let us know in the comments.
NOTE: The purpose of this blog isn’t financial gain but given the new FTC requirements for full disclosure we feel obligated to state that the recommended reading list is an Amazon associate’s page, for which we get some incredibly small amount back in the event you do use our links. We are not really interested whether you use our links or not, we just want an easy way to recommend books to you. For those fellow bloggers that haven’t seen the FTC requirement, here is the relevant couple of sentences:
The revised Guides specify that while decisions will be reached on a case-by-case basis, the post of a blogger who receives cash or in-kind payment to review a product is considered an endorsement. Thus, bloggers who make an endorsement must disclose the material connections they share with the seller of the product or service.
One final quote to leave you with…
Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read. ~Groucho Marx
