Amazon is not always Amazin'

Amazon is not always Amazin'

Amazon is not always Amazin', er, Amazon. In reply to my inquiry as to why certain books were available on amazon.com but not on amazon.co.uk, here is the reply which I received:

"Dear Customer

Thank you for contacting Amazon.co.uk with your enquiry.

Although we are affiliated, all orders with Amazon.com are
independent of any orders with Amazon.co.uk. This means that we
cannot order items from another Amazon site for you and that we
cannot combine orders across our different sites. Also, not all
items which are listed on Amazon.com are available within the UK.


Thank you for your interest in Amazon.co.uk.

Please let us know if this e-mail answered your question

Bill Clinton and Abebooks.com

Bill Clinton and Abebooks.com

AbeBooks features My Life by former US President Bill Clinton in its Avid Reader Newsletter quoting Allan Lichtman of American University:

"Whether you love him or hate him, he's an enigmatic, fascinating figure...."

To which I must add my own perhaps odd question about the human race: why do people feel a need to love or hate a man whom most do not know at all personally? and what is the fascination that people have towards people in political power?

Are they different than the man on the street? Seldom.

Those who ARE different than the man on the street seldom get elected.
