Amazon Book Links on Listening 2 God Blog

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

I have added some automatic links to Amazon.com, the world’s largest online book store. They are under the heading Related Reading. As you may have noticed, some of the titles displayed are somewhat bizarre given the topics of the posts. Unfortunately I don’t have complete control over this and hope you will be patient while I experiment with the best way of achieving this feature.

The search for relevant books is presently triggered automatically from the content of a post and the tags associated with it. Besides, noone has to buy any of the books, and their appearance here does not necessarily imply my endorsement of them. I trust people to use their own discretion without me having to play big brother and protect them.

The book links are there for two reasons. First, for every book sold through my websites I get a small commission from Amazon. This helps to play for domain registration, website hosting, development time, food, clothes, and most of all books (I get paid in book tokens).

Second, I believe related books can add useful information and interest to a post. Certainly, in this way I have discovered new books that I may not have otherwise found.

I hope you find them interesting.

Change from Blogger to WordPress

Thursday, April 8th, 2010

Because Google are not going to support FTP blogs hosted by Blogger after May 1st I have moved the Listening to God blog to WordPress. The problem with the main site was caused by a server upgrade to PHP5 breaking the code in the pages. It’s now fixed. A new theme is now being built to replace this default WordPress theme.
