Flying-By-Week and Amazon
This week I skipped over Sacred Sunday and passed by Wellness Wednesday and here it suddenly is Friday and a week since I lasted blogged. I don't know how this happened. Of course, I'm home now and getting back into my regular life. Here are some things I wanted to share with you:
This article from Charles Eisenstein that attempts to summarize his book "The Ascent of Humanity" into a page. (Not possible, but a good effort.) Note that the entire text of this masterpiece is now online for free, with the expectation that you will donate what you find it worth to you. It's an amazing and worthwhile read.
My profile page on Amazon, along with links to the reviews I've written. If you find a review helpful, please vote for it, as it not only helps my rankings, but it helps me to see what people like and don't like. But it really does help my rankings, thanks in advance!
When you go through my Amazon reviews, you'll find out a lot about me. Things like:
If it seems like all I've been doing this week is sitting around eating organic chocolate and drinking tea and reading Hawaiian books...well, that's what I've been doing! Dagoba Chocolate reviews are very important!
If my reviews seem to cover wide-ranging areas of interest, it's because I've been reviewing on Amazon for over ten years, and my tastes have changed as I've changed.
If it seems like I buy everything under the sun via Amazon, it's because I do. Everything. You'll see. Most recently, I've stepped out and reviewed some...err...unusual things to review, even for me.
I wanted to include again, because it's been a while, a link to Amazon's Movers & Shakers. Now, this list is just for books, but on the left-hand column you can see links to Movers & Shakers for many other things. One of my favorites is Kitchen & Dining, a place I often visit when looking for a gift. "Movers & Shakers" mean that something is increasing dramatically in popularity on Amazon in that category, and there's always a reason. In Books it's most often because the author is promoting the book on television. But in the other categories it's usually because there is a price cut. I've gotten tremendous bargains there. So...Explore!
In addition, if you're considering shopping this weekend, try Sierra Trading Post's Barn Burners. They offer screaming deals and video reviews of outdoor products, but other things too, like high quality clothes and shoes and more. Their regular prices are good, but the Barn Burner changes several times a day, most have videos, and you can get some useful things while saving money.
That's about as deep as it gets around here today, folks!
