Something Cool!

No, not a new job (I wish!), but still something cool...

I got an email from Amazon.com the other day inviting me to participate in their new "Vine" program. Here's what it said:

Greetings from Amazon.com!

As one of our most valued customer reviewers, we would like to offer you a special invitation to join an exciting new Amazon program called Amazon Vine. As a member of this exclusive community, you will have access to pre-release and new products across all Amazon categories, and the opportunity to be among the very first to review them. There is no cost to you to participate or to receive Vine products. We are simply asking for your time in writing reviews for the products you select from the program.

Basically I get an email newsletter every month, with new products I can review, I get to pick up to two products, they send them to me for free, I review them, and I get to keep them when I'm done! I got my first newsletter yesterday, and picked out two nonfiction books to review (I mostly read nonfiction). Hopefully one of the newsletters will include some crochet books too.

I'm pretty excited - I love to read, and what could be better than getting new books for free?!

Excellent! Thought of this post when I read about your Amazon thingee ... she gives the actual $$ she earned from signing up with various online survey companies. Might be enough to earn you bus fare and a dinner out once in a while, if you have internet time and enough patience to do the surveys.
