Why Amazon.com links?

I do not write and maintain this site for a salary; my sole support for this site's expenses is the Amazon.com donation jar (above), and Amazon.com book links and other commercial links I've added to the site.  If you have Javascript enabled in your Internet browser, you'll see targeted suggestions on many of this site's pages. You can use the links to find books at the library or at your local bookstore, but buying books directly through the links on this site will help pay the cost of this site and help keep it online.
