Have you checked out the home page recently?

Boswellbaxter has been very busy, and added a new page that contains links to Amazon for all of the previous books of the month since we have been at this site.

Also, going forward when we do the book of the month descriptions it will, where possible, include the Amazon link.

If you are going to be shopping for books at Amazon during the festive season, please consider using the search box at the bottom of the forum. We will receive a small commission that will be put towards the cost of running the forum.

Great idea. Would the link follow on to Amazon UK, too, if I click on the UK users notice at the top of Amazon.com?

On another forum I use, if a thread contains a word like for example 'caravan' there will be three adds on caravans, we played about with it till we got told off by the mods! Some of the adds were really funny!

I've seen that happen before! And sometimes you just have to wonder what the connection is between some ads and the content!

So if we buy through the link does HFOnline get commission for everything we buy on Amazon or just the book of the month?

I'm asking because I buy quite a bit on Amazon (I tried boycotting them a while ago but caved...it's too good of a deal and convenient :o ) and I'd like our forum to get a cut!! Esp for upcoming holiday shopping!

If you click on the "search" link at the bottom of this page and place your order from there, the site should get a commission. Same with any of the links on the home page and the Book of the Month page.
