It is difficult to remain fresh and current when reviewing books without maintaining some contact with publishers and authors. If a publisher or an author provides a review copy of a book for free, I will state that information in the blog post relating to that book.
The affiliate links to Amazon are provided to give the reader easy access to further reviews and additional book information. If you click an Amazon link and purchase a book, I do receive a small percentage of the purchase price as financial compensation. The amount I receive goes towards the price of registering and maintaining the Wild About Ants domain. Being an Amazon affiliate does not influence my choice of books to review or how I review them.
I will update this statement as the need arises.
