More info if you need it:

To find an ASIN:

1. Search Amazon's Kindle Store for the book.
2. Click on the book to go to its product page on Amazon.
3. The product details page shows the ASIN:



If you're not finding it there, you can find the ASIN in the URL in your browser's address bar. The ASIN is a 10-character string, and is usually located between slashes, or between a slash and a question mark. You can generally find it towards the beginning of the URL.
    Example: http://www.amazon.com/War-and-Peace/dp/B00114LIFA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=digital-text&qid=1226091854&sr=1-1
    Example: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001BADGK4?pf_rd_p=457553301&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_i=133141011&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=164AX94KAAMXGNG1TG9G
4. Type (or copy/paste) that 10-character ASIN into the above form.

To find an image URL:

1. Search Amazon's Kindle Store for the book.
2. Click on the book to go to its product page on Amazon.
3. Right-click on the image of the bookcover.
     If you're using Firefox, select 'Copy image location'. This copies the URL for the image to your clipboard.
     If you're using Internet Explorer, select 'Properties', and then copy/paste the Address ("URL") that is displayed in the properties box.
4. Paste (CTL-V) that image URL into the Image URL field in the above form.
5. That's it! Readers of your post will be able to click on the book cover to go straight to the Kindle Store page for that book.


What about other Amazon items?

For other items sold on Amazon, it's exactly the same process. (Every Amazon item has an ASIN - electronics, clothes, you name it.)
