Wishlist Blast from the Past

So I have this wishlist on amazon.com, right? And even though hardly anyone ever uses it to buy me something, it's a great list to remind myself of things I want (I can look at it when I'm browsing in a used bookstore, for example). I try to keep it updated, so every once in a while I'll look through it and remove a few books that I have acquired since adding them to the list or, more rarely but still sometimes, I'll remove something I no longer want.

Just now, I removed a VHS tape I had on there. I mean, I still wouldn't mind owning a copy of Casablanca, but on VHS??!! Ha!! I apparently added that to the list in 1999. Maybe I should have left it on there for posterity.

Ah, the good ole days. And ten years - see what a dedicated Amazon user I am?!

You are a wonder of dedication to Amazon.

I love the Kindle. I've read only one book on it so far, "Juliet, Naked," but it was a great experience. (I also got a lot of book-books for Christmas and am alternating between Kindling a book and reading a book.)

But when I next buy them, I'll try to go through your affiliate program. That way, you can afford to upgrade from VHS to DVD... just in time for them to make your DVDs obsolete.

I find out more about the Internet from you than anyone else. I just joined up on Library Thing.

We have no bookstore in my small burg, so it's amazon for me. Way too much amazon, actually. Books are an addiction!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
