We’re writing here to let you know that The Book Wars has just entered into a partnership with Bookwitty, a “book discovery” platform that allows you to buy books at reasonable prices and offers free worldwide shipping.
Basically, through our posts, you will have the option of adding books that we’ve mentioned to your cart and purchase the books directly from BookWitty. And, full disclosure, we do get a small commission for every book purchased which will go towards maintaining the website and, hopefully, offering more and exciting content.
In order to make these purchases, you will need a Bookwitty ID, but that only takes three minutes. Two minutes to make it, a third minute to friend us on there. 🙂 (Kidding, you don’t have to do that last part.)
I think that’s all there is to this.
Hey, thank you for your support thus far. When we started the blog in 2012, we didn’t think we’d make it to 2018. Your reading and commenting has helped us keep on. And if you don’t want to buy books off of our website/Bookwitty, you don’t have to. If you do choose to buy books off of our website, that’s cool too. At the end of the day, we’re glad to have our readers.
Hope February is treating you all well.
