(I couldn't find any mention of this in the archives, so I'm guess it
hasn't been brought up before... I also earlier posted this via the

Has anyone given any thought to joining's affiliate
program? Since we already list several recommended books on the
bibliography page, and, in fact have one book already about a Boost
library plus another one upcoming, it would seem only natural.

It would just involve filling out an online form on Amazon's site, and
then putting links from the mention of the books here, to their page at

The upshot of all this, is that if someone follows the link from to Amazon and buys a book, Boost get a commission (5%, which
considering the cost of tech books, is about $2.50 each), which should
go a small way to off-setting the cost of running the website, which I
assume is coming out of someone's (Beaman's?) pocket.
