At Amazon, the Book Buys You

Standard

OK, that’s not entirely accurate. Or remotely accurate, but I couldn’t resist the joke.

Normally, about now I’d be telling you about a book you can buy from Amazon, but today I figured I’d flip that. I don’t know if you know, but Amazon will buy your books as well. It’s like a big, natural circle of reading. Amazon pays for shipping, so it won’t cost you anything. Current best-sellers are probably your best bet, but at least that takes some of the guilt out of buying a full-priced new book.

And it’s not just for books, either. You can trade in movies, video games and other things, and get an Amazon gift card in exchange. When I logged in, it even told me what some things I’d bought from Amazon were worth, which is nice to know, not that I’m parting with my Zumba World Party, which is the most fun game ever, but I digress.

So you can use books to feed your reading habit. It’s beautiful, in a way.

Anyway, thus concludes this public service announcement.

Curious about Oil Pulling?

It seems like everyone is talking about “oil pulling” right now. What is that? To sum it up, you put oil in your mouth and swish from 10-20 minutes, and it’s supposed to be great for your oral health, according to the oil pullers who be. I’ve actually tried it and I love it, and I’m not much of an alternative medicine kind of person. I don’t know if I buy all of the supposed benefits, but my teeth do feel cleaner. Want to learn more? Here you go.
