BuyTheBookLinks
...the easiest way to add "buy the book" links...



There are two basic BuyTheBookLinks links: Buy.cgi and BuyTheBook.cgi.

Buy.cgi does all the work for you. You just link to http://www.BuyTheBookLinks.com/Buy.cgi?ISBN and you get the page you want.

BuyTheBooks.cgi is a javascript source, and you put it on your own page to get a drop down menu.

The full syntax of both links is as follows:
link.cgi?ISBN+OPT=VALUE;[OPT=VALUE;...]

Supported options for Buy.cgi are:

image
location of grpahics file to be desplayed, usually the cover.
desc
location of HTML file with description of book.
For example, if yoursite.com has two files on it, book.jpg and book.html, you might use the following link:

http://www.BuyTheBookLinks.com/Buy.cig?1234567890+image=http://yoursite.com/book.jpg;desc=http://yoursite.com/book.html
