Your Amazon wishlist when you really need it
Merlin Mann | Sep 2 2004
If you're like me, a trip to a record or book store often results in a complete brain fart; I can't remember why I'm there, what I want, or what I potentially might have wanted. It's farcical, and it often leads to stupid impulse buying instead of picking up what I'd really needed.
I get around this parietal deficiency by using my Amazon wish list as a parking lot for some of the books and records I want to buy (no, I don't want you to buy me anything; I'm just showing you).
Then, evey month or so, I print out and re-stash a miniature version of the list in my notebook so I'm always up to date when I'm out of the house and happen by a store.
So try this:
At the right resizing in Safari, then trimmed and folded, the "Title," "Author," and "Price" columns fit exactly into the back folder pocket of a mini-Moleskine. Swish.
Go forth and consume intelligently.
