I've been trying to figure out how this page was made:

http://chocolateandzucchini.com/reading.php

I would like to do something like that on my blog. Since it is Amazon connected, I assumed it was one of their widgets. The only one I thought it could be is the 'Product Links'. I guess each new book is added to the post as a new product link. Which is OK with me, but I can't get the image to show in the post.

A little guidance is what I need as to am I on the right track? I don't think it is the 'Product Links' widget. Which one is it? And, how can I put it in a blog post ?

Hello Annie,
The "Now reading" feature is not an Amazon widget, it is something I put together in MovableType, the blogging engine I use.
The way I did it is that I created a side blog (with no public access) in which each entry is a book, with the cover picture and a link to the Amazon page that I paste in manually.
I've then configured my C&Z templates to pull the entries from that "Reading" blog and list the latest one on the front page, and all past entries in the list you linked to.
Hope that helps!
Clotilde.
