Jill generously passed on a discount at Amazon.com to me, on Marie-Laure Ryan's book Narrative as Virtual Reality. Since I have wanted that book for some time I grabbed the opportunity. However, the next 5 emails in my mailbox, after the amazon.com notification, were junk emails. Coincidence? The very good system for sorting out spam at the college normally protects me from junk like that. I have however noticed that shopping at Amazon tends to coincide with new bursts. I don't know if it's just amazon.com or if the same happens with their .co.uk site, but I will be keeping an eye open, and see if this is a pattern.
