The Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics: Why associate with amazon.com?

The Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics has been graciously hosted for several years by the University of California, Santa Cruz. In 2001, Prof. Fred Lieberman suggested to me that I might try to sell some of my books through the site via a link to amazon.com. I thought this might violate some principle of non-profit use, however, so I decided that I would use amazon links to raise money with which to support the site. Even though it's not much money--about $175 in the first year, I feel that I should give the proceeds back to UCSC ultimately. So: I am using the proceeds from any amazon.com links to buy materials (CDs, books) that support the research involved in the Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics. I have established, through the good graces of the McHenry Library at UCSC, a special collection of material I have amassed about the band, and my will specifies that, upon my death, all Grateful Dead material I own will go into this collection.

I hope this allows those of you wishing to support the Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics in some material way to do so in good conscience!
