Nah, that's not an addiction...
it's an obsession:<)!

I filled Amazon's warchest with many golds in preparation for my trip to the US last month. The US store has far more variety (and deeper discounts) than the Japanese store, but even that I will miss when I go home to Australia. We don't have Amazon at all.

Don't worry Kat, I've the same addiction although in my case they are books about classical philosophy :)

Donna said...

I'm among the Amazon.com afflicted as well.

Ah, Amazon Prime. Somebody at Amazon knew what they were doing when they offered me a "free trial" of Amazon Prime about two years ago. It makes me feel so righteous when I get "free" shipping. And only $3.99 for overnight shipping! And One-Click shopping! My order history at Amazon shows 13 orders in the past 30 days. You haven't got a problem -- _I_ have a problem.

My order will be in my hands Friday. I know of what you speak.

Mimi said...

I have the same problem.
And, is "A Sportsman's Notebook" the same as "Sketches from a Hunter's Album" if so, I LOVE that book.

I'm not allowed to buy anymore tomes until after Easter.

But, of all the things you could be doing, this one doesn't make you fat, hung-over or regretful!

BTW, I'm putting them all on my Springtime "to-read" list.

I wouldn't worry, Carolina. You're just getting into the glories of Russian literature and I don't see why you shouldn't spend your money on Turgenev.

Ellyn said...

Yeah, I knew I had a problem when I signed up to let amazon draw money directly from my checking account. (the only thing better would be to have my employer just deposit my paycheck with amazon. :) )

I think there may be an intervention in my future...

In the meantime, let's enjoy...

Order the Amazon Visa card! You get triple points back for Amazon purchases and you can cash in your reward points for $50 checks!

These sound great. I've read a number of reviews of these books and ordered them from our local library. Thanks!!
