Not more than once a month, I interrupt the proceedings to beseech thee to help support T.O.P. by using our Amazon and B&H links. Anything you buy at those sites when you link from T.O.P. sends a small percentage winging our way. It won't cost you anything extra; the purchase price is the same for you either way. Our share comes out of Amazon's and B&H's profits, not your hide.
Obviously we get the most benefit when you splurge on something expensive, but it also helps the site when you buy something twee and tiny (on Amazon, this is), because the number of orders we refer ups our percentage. Big purchases, tiny purchases, everything in between...all good. It all helps.
So, if you read this site a lot, I'm sorry, but you kinda have to buy a book or a CD or something else you might want every month, don't you? It's not your fault. You're only doing your selfless duty, and you can say so if your spouse questions the purchase. Look innocent and shrug your shoulders when you say it, too. It might help. (You might even try the same excuse to buy a new camera or lens, although I can't promise it will work.)
Please don't forget us at Christmas, either....
Here's the direct Amazon link for U.S. readers (which can be bookmarked):
Here's the B&H link (this can't be bookmarked, though—use the ad in the left-hand column):
Other links (to Amazon in the U.K. and Germany, for instance) can be found here. You can also go to the Affiliate links at the bottom of the right-hand column on any page on the site.
And if you're not in a buying mood, don't worry about it. You're always welcome here whether you help us out or not.
Okay, that's it, consider thyself beseeched...
