Amazon books - sponsor the Mars Society

For years the Mars Society has had a deal with Amazon. Buy books from Amazon, a small portion goes to the Mars Society. The Society used to have a web store with links for specific books. Today I got an email from the Mars Society: Amazon Smile.
https://smile.amazon.com/ch/31-1585646
When you register, just purchase from Amazon at the same usual price, 0.5% of your purchase goes to the Mars Society. You can change the charitable organization the funds go to, but I recommend the Mars Society Inc.

Some books:
The Case for Mars: The Plan to Settle the Red Planet and Why We Must - 2011

Re: Amazon books - sponsor the Mars Society

Not in my library, but very useful. These are compilations of papers published at Mars Society conventions. Many of the papers are available on the Mars Society website, under Mars Papers. Most of the presentations at Mars Society conventions don't make it to Mars Papers. You get a lot more by actually attending. Proceedings of the founding convention required 3 volumes, so you can see why they didn't do that every year. But here are select papers, chosen for publication. I wrote two of the papers in the last book. (Woo Hoo! I'm published!)

Proceedings of the Founding Convention of The Mars Society, Volume 1
