You may have heard about the new FTC regulations on blogger "advertising". And although I think what they're proposing is completely ridiculous (from what I understand of it) I am (grudgingly) trying to comply with the new rules. So this is my disclaimer. Consider yourself officially warned.
This blog absolutely does not make money. The exact opposite, if anything. I spend more money (mostly postage) than I bring in through my affiliate links.
I receive review copies from publishers. Some of them I review, some I give away, some I donate to schools. I also get books from the library, book trading websites, and of course buying them.
I am an Amazon Affiliate. This means that I get a very small percentage of the purchases of people who buy from Amazon.com using the links on my blog. Trust me, it's a small percentage. The last month I got paid for was 80 cents for the whole month. There may also be miscellaneous advertising/banners on the blog that I get a very small percentage of as well.
Okay, now you've been made aware. I'm a poor ex-student, I don't have any money, and so if you want to come after me, Mr. Government, you won't get anything because I. Don't. Have. Any. Money. Thanks to this crappy recession I can barely afford rent as it is. The rest of you can carry on now.
