10 years on Amazon.com


I just ordered some gifts for the holidays on Amazon.com and found that I’ve been a member of that site for just over 10 years! My first order there was “The Best Test Preparation for the AP European History with Disks” placed in mid-September to help with one of my classes in high school; if I remember correctly, the book was OK at helping to study for the class, but the software was useless.

That order was followed promptly (almost a year later) by my purchasing some summer reading books: “Foundation” by Isaac Asimov (Unfortunately, I don’t think I actually ended up reading this one), “A Wizard of Earthsea” by Ursula K. Le Guin (great book from what I can remember), and “Waiting for Godot” by Samuel Beckett (I still say “WTF!?!” every time I think about that book).

Any other early internet commerce participants have interesting first purchases from Amazon?
