...Amazon starts sending you interestingly assorted "Amazon Recommends" emails such as the one I got this morning which advised me to purchase Maurice Sendak's Where the Wild Things Are and Umberto Eco's On Literature.
And to the credit of the money Amazon has poured into such customer activity predictive profiling, both of these are indeed books that I have considered buying at one time or another in the last year or so. (The money that must be spent simply to mimic having an intelligent book seller who knows your tastes...)
This concludes any tendency to cutesy parent blogging for the day.
