Interesting… the other thing I was thinking about is that I remember — vaguely, so possibly inaccurately — that Amazon no longer makes the majority of their money from books. It’s from the other junk they sell.
A reminder that while cream rises to the top, so does shit.
I can’t stop laughing over the fact that people not only needed the “mammoth” version of “The Da Vinci Code,” they apparently needed the illustrated version too. And you’re absolutely right, Gwenda. They get their bread from the other stuff.
Where have you gone, Toni Bentley? A nation turns its lonely sphincter to you. Woo woo woo.
