I'm assuming you (Mike) get a cut from the Kindle books we buy after clicking through to Amazon with your affiliate links. Well, assuming that and slapping my forehead because I bought Gohlke's "Thoughts on Landscape" for the Kindle and forgot about your affiliate links. And on Christmas Day of all days. Won't happen again, I promise.

Purchased #1 via your Amazon connection. Gracias, as ever, Andrew Kirk (totally a famous image-maker...yeah, right). (Gotta love the punctuation.).

Is street photography trendy? How many books are How-Tos rather than photographs books? Changes over the years?...
Ok, boooring statistics...

If you put a book in your Wish List at Amazon I'm pretty sure you lose the affiliate link.

So I guess you need to remember that and come back here or copy the link from this page, save the link, and use that link when you're ready to buy the book.

If I'm wrong Mike then delete this post or just correct me.

Everyone else does.

You can add one to the count for Ctein's restoration book, if it matters. I got it for Christmas, but I don't know the purchase source. I'm glad I put it on my wish list.

The Pleasures of Good Photographs is a cracker. Best writing on photography I've read in a long while ... apart, of course, from that of our esteemed host!

I have to say, I bought the Gohlke books and quite frankly I don't get it. It's a matter of taste, I think, but I really see nothing special there. And I tried. And I think I'm reasonably insightful. It's just not right for me.

Maybe this is a good place to alert you to "The Jazz Loft Project" by Sam Stephenson. In case you didn't know about it. Photographs and tapes of W. Eugene Smith from 821 sixth Avenue 1957-1965. Fascinating photo- and music history, a look back at culture of the time.
Best wishes for 2011.
