There’s no search function in Amazon’s wish lists? Unless I’m just too tired to see straight, it seems you can’t search within your own list — only for other customer’s wish lists. But screw other customers, Amazon. I’ve been keeping that list since 2003, pruning it on occasion of books that I no longer wish for or that I’ve found at a used bookstore. I’ve got nine pages. I need search, you bastards.
Much like the Netflix situation discussed below, there are some long-suffering books on this list that just don’t have a prayer. I know when I heard that Robert Massie’s “Dreadnought” is a good book (Dec. 21, 2003) — otherwise why on earth would I wish-list a book about WWI battleships — but as the second-oldest title, I’ve got to be honest with myself: I probably don’t wish for it all that much.
