Taken from an Amazon review of WOOSH: Spaceship Sketches from the Couch, whose first line of description is "WOOSH! is a collection of personal spaceship sketches created by entertainment designer Lorin Wood as he decompressed on his couch after a long day at work."
I also didn't realize that this book mostly shows drawings done while reclining on the couch?

Replacing our can opener with America's Test Kitchen's current top-rated can opener, and I notice that we seem to be getting quite the deal with it.



Hah! And the same can opener on eBay, as pointed out by a friend on Facebook: Read more... )

Ummmmmm

I don't remember which of you mentioned the early 20th century novel _Living Alone_, but I ended up highlighting a bunch of passages in it, and I almost never do that in books. It was short and charming, although unfortunately marred by two instances of (typical for the time) racism.

However, that is not why I'm posting this. I'm posting this because Amazon obviously keeps an eye on what I'm reading on the Kindle, although its algorithm seems to be going by the title and not the content, and now Amazon is recommending books to me that would make Toby very worried if he didn't find it as hilarious as I do.

Examples:

Freedom from Loneliness
Living Alone and Loving It
Surviving & Thriving Solo
Going Solo
Single
Live Alone and Like It
The Single Woman's Sassy Survival Guide
Finding Forever Love

WHAT DO YOU KNOW THAT YOU'RE NOT TELLING ME, AMAZON?!

Amazon really, really wants me to buy Vita Sackville-West today. I've got a number of her books recommended.

...the time of year when Amazon boxes arrive and stack up and you're not sure whether it's something you ordered for yourself, something you ordered for someone else, something someone else ordered for you, or something someone else ordered for you that accidentally got sent to you.

Wow...

Mom came through with an Amazon gift certificate because I made her busienss cards at the last minute last week, so it was a nice haul. :)

Books ordered )

...and want to support Project Blue Rose and associated endeavors, feel free to click trhough my Amazon Associates Link, which kicks back a few pennies from each purchase, which then get deposited into the PBR bank account and we use them to fund reprints or anything else directly associated with the books and site, like the domain name registration. :D (Spurred by me noticing that we've got $9.83 in kickbacks this month, and Amazon doesn't pay out unless it's over $10. Well, they *do* roll it forward to the next month, but the principle! The principle!)

Or if you'd prefer, you could also shop through this Amazon Associates link, which kicks back to an online friend of mine who is struggling with medical bills right now. I'll let her ID herself if she wants to.

...provided here in case any random relatives might be looking through this journal for ideas for any, say, upcoming birthdays or anything like that.

Amazon wishlist.

I may get around to filling in the Christmas meme thing. I may not. We'll see.
