Amazon has done many things that are usable, or innovative, or just plain new, but this new one is lust plain devious. Upon arriving at the site today, in an effort to buy Doctorow's book that I don't have to buy
, I saw the item you see to the left. They really seem to be woprking the impulse buy angle (eg, the Gold Box) these days.
