amazonly associated thanks (& warnin’)

Following a now well-established pattern, let me (re)warn (the few) unwary ‘Og readers that the links to Amazon.com and to Amazon.fr found on this blog are actually susceptible to earn me a monetary gain [from 4% to 8% on the sales] if a purchase is made by the reader in the 24 hours following the entry on Amazon through this link, thanks to the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to amazon.com/fr. Unlike the pattern of last year, and of the year before last, the mostly purchased item through the links happens to be related to a blog post, since it is Andrew’s book, with 318 copies of its third edition sold through the ‘Og last month! Here are some of the most exotic purchases:

As usual the books I actually reviewed along the past months, positively or negatively, were among the top purchases… Like two dozen copies of The BUGS book. And a dozen of R for dummies. And even a few of The Cartoon Introduction to Statistics. (Despite a most critical review.) Thanks to all of you using those links (for feeding further my book addiction, books that now eventually end up in the math common room in Dauphine or Warwick, once I have read them)!
