The Amazon Meme

Jumping on the bandwagon

I've seen this in a few places, most recently over at Alyssa's. The question: What was the first thing you purchased on Amazon.com? I was mildly surprised to find that mine was Baryshnikov's Nutcracker on VHS in December 2002, to replace the version my parents taped from PBS when I was little. (I still have the tape, but no way to play it. I'll have to buy the DVD this Christmas.) I don't think that's actually right, though; perhaps I had an older account under a different e-mail address? I think I remember buying a tape of A Wish for Wings That Work as a gift for someone for Christmas 2000, and I can't imagine where else I would have gotten it. Hmmm.

I was surprised to find that they had all our orders back to 1997 still in their system. Back when they were just a bookstore! :) According to their records, my first order from them was *Mistress Pat*, during the summer of '97.

Nov 1998: Two copies of Be Nice to Spiders, a children's book for my then-husband's nieces and nephews. I recall being appalled that they didn't know the book.
