So you know that I post about books all the time, and a lot of the time I link to those books on Amazon, and sometimes people buy them, for which I earn a few cents on the dollar.
Well today I learned how to do a cool thing! I learned how to embed a preview or a link to a preview! So, if you want to "Look Inside" a book on Amazon, I can now link to that! That's so cool.
When I found that out, I wanted to try it out right away. But what book should I do it with? I went on my Amazon Associates account and dug around a bit until I found out what book Everead has sold the most copies of.
Are you ready?
It's Wildfire Run by Dee Garretson!!!
Woohoo! How fun is that? I love this book! No wonder I've sold some copies. Let me tell you why it's an awesome book:
- It's perfect for the 8-12 crowd.
- It stars two main characters, one boy one girl. So kids can't complain that it's not for them based on gender.
- It has action and suspense! But the conflict, the source of potential harm, is a wildfire, not the violent actions of others.
- It has everything The Hunger Games has, but is age appropriate.
- It shows 12-year-olds keeping their heads on straight, caring about others, and working their way out of a dangerous situation
Here is the fancy preview:
It has been way too long since I read this book! I need to reread it. I bet my eight-year-old would love it. What do you think? Know anybody who would like it?
And what do you think of the fancy new embedded preview feature and my spiffy pinterest-worthy image? :D

More books I recommend for pre-teens.
