Each year, we look back at the data we have from Amazon and assess what our readers bought via our links. (We only see purchased books that were purchased directly after clicking on our site–this thus isn’t necessarily all the books our readers bought on our recommendation.) This year, we sold just under twenty-two thousand books. The majority of the books were sold were ebooks although audio books were up this year. The average price per book was just over four dollars a tome. AAR receives 4% of book sales–thus far–so we made 3500.00.
