Books is an "online bookshop with a mission to financially support local, independent bookshops." I list books I review and/or recommend in Bookshop lists. All of the links to lists or individual books (as a text or button link) are affiliate links which means I receive a small commission from any purchase you make through those links (at no cost to you). [AFF] You can view my lists here.

[AFF] is an online book swap service where you gain credits for "selling" books you no longer wanted that can be used to "purchase" books you do. If you sign up using my invite link and complete a swap both you and I get a free book through the service.
