For the lurkers: If you like the Monastery and are recommending a book in your node, you may wish to provide a FatBrain link so that Vroom gets a small kickback if someone buys a book through that link. To do this:

  1. Locate the book's ISBN number, according to FatBrain. (Use their Search feature to find the most recent edition, as appropriate.)
  2. In your node type [ isbn:// ### | Link title ], where ### is the ISBN number.
  3. Test your link while Previewing your node. (I usually open it in a new window.)
  4. Submit. :)

This also works in the Chatterbox.
