A note about Amazon image icons
I have, until recently, used the icons from Amazon Associates to display images of the books I review. Recently, the gadget has stopped working. Here is one explanation which I will have to experiment with, from the help forums (link): I could not get this to work today.
The problem appears to be related to programming within the Amazon widgets, with some problems with “instances” of the email address. Maybe there is a problem in that my gmail address is used by the gadget, but my regular Amazon account uses an AOL email address.
Icons previously created by the gadget on this Book Reviews blog still display.
In the meantime I’m displaying my own image of the cover and giving an Amazon link manually.
