The IHEC Blog International Education Book Store

Recently I created the IHEC Blog International Education Book Store via Amazon.com and had a soft/quiet launch severalweeks ago. The little activity and traffic that I can track has been positive.  I mentioned previously over at IHEC Blog in a post that IHEC Blog is now an Amazon Associate (you can read more about that here). I’ve now taken this a step further and have created an international education book store on Amazon.com. All books that I have and will review or highlight on IHEC Blog will be linked to Amazon for people to learn more about the book and to purchase if they would like. Additionally, all books reviewed and highlighted on IHEC Blog will be added to the book store. The book store is currently divided into the following five sections to assist with searching for books:

- International Education and Exchange
- IHEC Blog Kindle Edition (reminder that all proceeds will be donated to UNICEF)
- Resources for International Careers
- Public/Citizen Diplomacy
- Higher Education

If you have a book that you think would be a good addition to the IHEC Blog International Education Book Store please send me a message via e-mail at international.ed.consulting@gmail.com or via Twitter at @DavidComp with information about the book and I’ll check it out. While I am open to including almost all relevant books in the book store please note and understand that I may decide not to include a certain book. Additionally, if you have a book you would like me to review please feel free to contact me so we can discuss and coordinate.

International Higher Education Consulting Blog (Kindle Edition)


Yes, you can now get IHEC Blog on the Kindle! I want to thank Penny Schouten (@PennySchouten) for suggesting this a few months ago. I finally found a few minutes this past week to investigate and that’s all that it really took to make it happen.

The main concern I have is that Amazon charges a monthly subscription fee. My intent with making IHEC Blog available on the Kindle was accessibility for readers and not pennies in my pocket. Additionally, Amazon set the monthly subscription fee at $0.99 but I would prefer the IHEC Blog Kindle Edition to be free. If you do subscribe I would love to hear what you think and if you could take a moment to provide a customer review I would appreciate it.

With a monthly subscription I’m not sure how many people will subscribe. Again, I didn’t do this to make money and any revenue generated by Kindle subscriptions I will donate to UNICEF. Even if you don’t have a Kindle or don’t want to subscribe to IHEC Blog please consider making a cash donation to UNICEF!

I have something else in the works for the mobile user and it will be free (assuming I read all the fine print correctly) so stay tuned…
