On the advice of a listener, I have enrolled in the Amazon Associates program. What this does is allow me to recommend items available on Amazon.com to listeners via this blog, and when those items are purchased through the link I provide, the show receives a certain commission from the sale. I think it’s a great way to interact with listeners and everyone wins in such an exchange. Of course, I will usually be recommending books, but films, music, and other items will appear from time to time as well.
With that said, my first recommendation to you is Who Murdered Chaucer? by Terry Jones (of Monty Python fame). This was actually used as a textbook in a medieval literature course that I recently took, and I enjoyed it immensely. It’s very readable, at times humorous, and incredibly insightful. It receives British History 101’s hearty recommendation. The problem is…I can’t get the HTML link provided by Amazon to work. Is anyone out there familiar with WordPress who may be able to help me?
