i found out

I am addicted to shopping on Amazon. I bought two CDs (Nouvelle Vague, vol. 1 & 2 - the Special Edition one, no less...), and two books (A Heart So White by Javier Marias, recommended by this lovely gal, and a fantastic architecture hardcover on Frank Gerhy) for the first time ever on the website a few weeks ago, and saved a bundle of moolah, baby! Plus, nice little packages get delivered to me in the mail! (and surely the surprise of receiving any packages in the mail is sheer & utter delight in itself no matter what marvel - capable of turning populations into a biological threat or not - may lie inside.)

Now, i cannot stop. They keep suggesting products to me, and though i am no fool to their marketing tactics, i am still overwhelmed with desire for EVERY SINGLE ITEM! Bastards. BUT! i do get to save money - on books, and DVDs, and CDs i've always wanted, all the goodies i can't find (am too lazy to look) elswehere, and let's not forget the free shipping. All this, and I DON'T EVEN HAVE TO MOVE MY ARSE! Bloody brilliant bastards!*

I finally get what this whole internet hoopla is all about. Should now move on to this Free Porn thing i keep hearing of then....

* Surely, i do realize nobody is unaware of this revealing piece of information but please, humour me. I just got a goddamn blog.

Me so jealous! Did you know there is no Australian version of Amazon? When I got here and found out, I wanted to move back home. Of course there are lots of fabulous (and pricey) bookshops in Melbourne, but Amazon does such good deals. I still have my Amazon UK account (now with an enormous wish list) and when I go back home at Crimbo, I'm going to buy as much as I can afford.

Do let me know what you think of A Heart So White; I'm very excited that you bought it.

BTW, I love all these pretty colours, they go so well together. You obviously have the eye!

Scandalous! I love bookshops (and will support them as much as i can :S - thank goodness for them coffee they sell), but now that i've 'found' Amazon, it's hard to actually buy anything elsewhere without checking the price on it first...

I have a few books i am reading atm, so A Heart So White will have to wait. Though it surely passed the test of having one the most enticing first page so far :D

And thank you. *blush* Glad you like the purrrdy colors!
