this alternative

You know how Amazon has all these helpful tools to find you stuff you want, including the one that tells you what other people buy after they look at an item you looked at? Well, look what people bought after viewing the paperback edition of The Perfect Storm:

Yeah. That's right, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. I have a feeling that, pretty much no matter what people have looked at recently on Amazon, they've gone ahead and bought Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

I was looking at The Perfect Storm because originally it was going to be on this list, but I decided that I didn't feel as strongly about it as I feel about the others. Still, it's a darn good book and Dahvay recommends it.

I think you are right, Harry will be on everyones "personalized" list of things selected "just for you...."

yeah, I also noticed this a few months ago when looking at biostatistics books and history books... "What did customers ultimately buy? Harry Potter!!!!!"
