This is at no extra cost for you. All you have to do is use this link to enter Amazon when you plan to buy.?

It works out about £110 per month at present I believe, although we would like to upgrade our hosting to get a faster server, which would be more. We also have occasional one-off costs like purchasing additional server space during upgrades.

Could you please put the amazon link inline so I can save it as a bookmark? When I click those I go right to the amazon homepage, so if I bookmark that I don't think it'll help.

does libcom still have money coming in from that link?

The link does take you straight to Amazon.co.uk, but it does work and give us money! We have a slow but steady trickle of money from that all year

How much money has come from the amazon.com link? How did y'all get that set up, anyway?

not a huge amount, but it is significant. About £60-£80 per year I think, or at least it was early on, it might be less now as may be fewer people use it (I don't use Amazon myself anymore really). To get on it, just Google Amazon associates

Bump, if anyone is doing any Christmas shopping on Amazon.co.uk please go through our link! (N.b. we are not encouraging you to do so, this is just for if you are going to be doing that anyway)

you should share the Amazon thing on Facebook a few times a year, I suspect most of the people who follow the page would be perfectly happy to use it, but I doubt most even know about it.

thanks, we might share it once or twice, however we don't want to make too big a deal of it so as not to encourage people to shop on Amazon

freemind, Or if they cannot be usefully scanned you could donate them later (or sooner) to a physical library maybe to Nottingham at http://thesparrowsnest.org.uk or Glasgows 'Spirit of Revolt' or the London 'May Day Rooms'?

Hey, I'm wondering if the amazon thing works if you're using amazon.com or amazon.ca rather than amazon.co.uk? And if so, do we need a different link?
Steven.

Hey, unfortunately that doesn't work, it only works with the UK one. To work with the others, we would need bank accounts in the US and Canada as well

Aww, too bad. Shipping stuff all the way from the UK would make the shipping cost much higher. But hey... I can still buy kindle books through the UK site. smile

yeah of course, we wouldn't expect you to do that! Maybe you can buy kindle books though, although you should make sure that they will still go to your Kindle (I know in some cases if your Kindle is registered in one country, you have to purchase all your books from that country's Amazon site)

You can refund a Kindle book within... I think it's 24 hours of purchasing? I forget the time limit but I've done it before. But in any case, if a UK purchase didn't go to my Kindle, I could just refund it, so it's at least worth a try.
