Amazon Tagging Episode IV: A New Hope

Welcome to an all new list of books to tag on Amazon. The idea here is based on Todd A Fonseca’s book tagging idea.

However, this list will be limited to just 50 books.

The list is currently open for new books to join.

To join, simply post a comment stating your book’s title, author name and the 3 tags that you would like others to add to your book. For the convenience of others you must also post the “permalink” to your book on This is the link to your book that never changes and it will have your 10 digit ISBN number lurking in it. For example, my book, “Oom” ‘s permalink is as follows:

where 1439261873 is my 10 digit ISBN number.

You should also leave some kind of contact information, such as an email address or a link to your blog.

You are welcome to wait until the list is complete before you start doing the actual tagging. I will update this page when the list is complete. It might be a good idea to subscribe to my blog’s RSS feed.

Once the tagging begins people should post a reply comment here when they are done tagging. That way we will know who are the ones not tagging (for whatever reason, maybe they got sick) and they can be removed from the group and replaced by others.

UPDATE – jan 23 2010: adding a summary list of all the books so far to aid tagging:
UPDATE – feb 8 2010: 35 books reached. Sending out reminder mail!

    • davew1977 Says:

      No, you’re not too late. Consider yourself added to the list!

    • Thomas Hollowell Says:

      Hi Gina,

      Your books sounds very appealing : )

      Would you like to trade and review each other’s book? I live abroad, but we could send ebooks (PDF Files) to each other. My books is only in print, but I am trying to get the publisher to get it into ebook form. Following our readings, we could then comment/review and if we like the other, perhaps leave a review on Amazon.I will also review yours on

      My book is called “Allah’s Garden: A True Story of a Forgotten War in the Sahara Desert of Morocco”

      It is located at:

      If anyone else is interested in my book (and perhaps I in their book), we could trade and tell each other what we think. This might lead (but is not guaranteed) to lead to a review. We should agree to review any book reviews before they are posted elsewhere. We should only read books and write reviews of books we think we might enjoy. Could this work out on this site? It might prove even more difficult to organize?

      My email is

      Take Care!

    Toni, I have already tagged you, probably from another tagging site. Glad to have you here though.

  49. Peggy Williams Says:

    Toni, I went back to Amazon and found that I could tag the others in addition to the first three I had already tagged,(without taking away from your tag count) so now you are tagged completely by me. Do you need more reviews? Your book seems very interesting, if you want to trade reviews with PDF’s, I’d be happy to read & post a review on Amazon, Barnes & Noble & Goodreads.

  50. wbentrim Says:

    I am up to date on my tagging as of 1/23/10.
    Question, should I not see a quantum jump on my tags by now?
