Anonymous said: how much on average are you paid/month from amazon?

Sorry, I’m not going to give you a specific answer. I will tell you a couple things. You start out earning 4% on each item. It’s not about selling books because they’re $10 a pop. The good thing about Amazon Associates is that you get a commission on any item bought within 24 hours of your link getting clicked. You win when people buy things like $500 televisions.

I’m a member of Amazon Associates. I wrote a short 10 page report about it for beginners, which I used to have up on my blog. You can download it here.

Review of China, Please Give Me More by Sergio Tell

image

In China Please Give Us More, the stadium is blaring and the lights are bright until a comedic tragedy strikes. There’s much more in between that makes this book a good one. I love how the author depicts China creating shortages and solving those shortages with other products. I get the feeling that current events play a role in the plot creation. Language also plays a role and it’s what causes the tragedy in the first place.

Through the course of reading the Fungus books, I realized that you can understand a lot of things in life by joking about them. A good example in this book is when marriage is described as the sharing of money.

Right now this is the newest Fungus book. I’m eager to see what Tell comes up with next.
