March/April Book Club Selection

16241141Yesterday, you voted and you chose Fairyland: A Memoir of My Father for our March/April book club selection. I’m super excited to read this one. It’s “a beautiful, vibrant memoir about growing up motherless in 1970s and ’80s San Francisco with an openly gay father.” If you purchase it on Amazon (Kindle, hardback, paperback, or audio versions are available), I’ll get a small commission to help support the site. Next week, we’ll discuss our January/February selection, The Fault in Our Stars. Happy reading!

I’m excited about so many things – this book, a book club that doesn’t necessitate wearing pants, and supporting your site! But I have a question about the Amazon order. When I click on the Amazon link above, it takes me to the hardcover edition of the book and the link includes your site:
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/0393082520/?&tag=dearwecom-20&linkCode=wsw&

But when I click on the Kindle edition I get this link without mention of you:
http://www.amazon.com/Fairyland-Memoir-Father-Alysia-Abbott-ebook/dp/B00AR35438/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&sr=&qid=

Is this a glitch or do you only get credit for hardcover orders? Will you get credit if I add “tag=dearwecom-20&linkCode=wsw&” to the end of the URL for every item I want to buy an item from Amazon? I tried going through the Amazon portal on the DW website to do a test search for Fitbits (I’m obsessed with mine) and I got a message saying “Your search fitbit did not match any products” even though it brings up links to a lot of different fitbits. When I click on those other links your code isn’t there. Sorry this is so long and convoluted – I don’t want to be a bother, I just want to figure out how I can make sure you’re getting a little credit.

As long as you get to amazon through a link of DW, regardless of what that link’s url is, I will get a commission (usually 6-8%) on all purchases you make. Even if you just put something in your cart and then purchase it later, I will still get a commission. Thanks for asking!

I am coming out of years of lurking to say I am super excited for this book and the book discussion! Maybe this is the beginning of a beautiful new commenting habit. One can hope. <3

I’m going to try and read this because I want to be a part of the book club! I wish I had re-read Fault In Our Stars, but I have to say, I really want to read some of John Green’s other books. There was a BuzzFeed post on different quotes from his books and they were all SO GOOD!

I’m excited about this book! I’m going to the library tonight to get it.
