Embedding Amazon's Preview on a Website

My dear sister showed me this neat trick.  It's a great idea to show your readers Amazon's preview of your book.  But how do you do that?

First, here's what it'd look like:

The viewer clicks on preview and can read the sample shown on Amazon.  Cool, huh?

Here's how it works.

1.  Go to the page for your book on Amazon.  Here's a picture of the one for 'You'll Call it Home':

2.  See where the red arrow is in this picture?

That part looks like this, up close:

Click on that word <Embed>.

3.  You'll see a popup windows that looks like this:

From that part, you can either get a link (URL) or Embed on your site (HTML).  I click on the 'Embed on your site' part.

4.  The code comes up inside the little box.  Put that part in the HTML in your website code (or on your blog in blogger by clicking on HTML and putting it in there.

Easy to do!  I love plug-and-play stuff.

Have a great day!
