Do you know if it's okay to use pictures of books with links to Amazon on my site?  These are not books I sell, just books that I recommend to those who are interested in the type of services I offer.

Hi angelaryles8954,

I can't imagine why they would care, but I'm not a lawyer, and laws can get complicated, so I have to tell you that you will need to ask Amazon for the final word.

Thanks

Drew

As a writer and song writer myself I would always be delighted of any link to my product that might help me make a sale. Links also help raise the Google rating too so I can't imagine why anyone would object. Posting illustrations of a book cover is only going to be seen as an infringement of copyright if you are using it for personal gain, if you are not selling the books or using the illustrations as part of your branding there should not be any problem at all...

angelaryles8954,

I also agree with Drew and Trevor's comments.  As long as you are not doing this for any sort of personal gain, they likely will not care, and may even be glad for the reasons Trevor4274 mentioned.
