Excuse me. Have we met?

Okay, the wonders of internet technology never cease to amaze me, but this is blowing my mind these days...

Amazon.comRecommended for You has new recommendations for you based on items
you purchased or told us you own.

Following this announcement, which arrived unsolicited to my inbox, was a list of eight books (with lovely little photos of the books' covers)... all of which I would, in fact, LOVE to read!

I mean, it was accurate enough that it was almost creepy... This particular computer program knows me better than most of my friends. Hmmm...

Hi Laurie,

I have had just the same thought! Chris Garcia explained it to me one time - I mean, the mathematics behind how accurate these things are. I am troubled by the same feeling as you - with the result that I have a huge list of novels I really want to read!
