Amazons Conspire Against Me!

While performing standard procrastination, I visited Amazon.com. The evil site greeted me like an old friend (I've been a customer since 1994), and immediately made me some "instant recommendations":
  • The Tristan Chord, by Bryan Magee
  • First Lessons in Sanskrit Grammar and Reading by Judith Tyberg
  • Coraline, by Neil Gaiman
    ...
  • ...and Terminator on DVD1.

Curious, I hit Amazon.co.uk. The site grinned knowingly and offered a host of graphic novels by Gaiman, Moore, Ennis, etc., alongside some titles by Stephen Fry and Ben Elton. *sigh*

Damn, their databases are getting to know me well...

1 Well, okay, so they missed big-time in the DVD section.
