On the right sidebar you’ll see a link to a Book Depository “wish list.” Book Depository because of the free shipping anywhere in the world (though it does not save my shipping details, you’ll have to email me for my address). There is also an Amazon list for those more familiar and comfortable with that venue (though there are shipping costs, it does have the advantage of saving my shipping details so you won’t have to email me.)
This is a list of books that I want/need for my research and general edification and enlightenment. I’m not trying to monetize this blog, even though I pay for the hosting of the site. For a while I toyed with doing a Google Ads thing on here, just to see how the process worked and see if there were a few cents to be made. But no, that’s a little too brazen and I hate ads anyway. Then I thought about a straight up PayPal “donation” button, to which I thought “no, that would make it appear that education should be thought of as a charity, which I definitely disagree with.” The booklist seems like a nice thing to publicise. On the one hand, you get to see what types of books I like to read, on the other, maybe you will feel a twang of generosity and decide to buy me one! Not that I expect it, this is more of an experiment than anything else. Also, you can find a bunch of free music on this site, which will increase over time. I won’t sell my old recordings again, I prefer to just give them away on this site. So, you could think of the book wish list as a “books for music swap” if you like.
