Are you referring to the fact that purchasing multiple books blocks your credit card from going through?

Oh, I just found the article from The Guardian:

Return to Santa – Amazon calls time on the unwanted gift.

Retailer patents system that allows people to identify bad gift givers and return their gifts before they are even sent.

I wonder what they consider a bad gift???

Let's see. The worst gift I've ever received... a very bad painting that my niece bought at a college art show. A lithograph of a huge eyeball that looked like a fish swimming in red water.

Amazon want us to think they are amazing, right?

I'm at a loss for words. Next they will read my mind and send me what I wanted....

Thanks All

Amazing sums it up, I think - but maybe not in the way Amazon has in mind.
