Very cool! I was living in the UK in 1995 and I remember my dad back here in the States raving about this site where he could order any book he wanted and they'd deliver it right to the house! :eek: Meanwhile, we barely had email .... I remember our compuserve address was all numbers.

We came back to the States in summer of '96. My earliest purchase from Amazon was October '97 according to Amazon, but I feel like I'd bought stuff before that. BUT, we had a different email address when we first came back and that ISP got bought out later and we ended up with Comcast. So I feel like there were orders under the previous email address that aren't showing on my account now.

I do remember clearly that when you ordered a book they included a bookmark. And for a few years, they sent presents at Christmas -- Amazon commuter drink tumblers -- found a bunch of those clearing out my dad's house after he died. ;) They stopped that after 3 or 4 years, I think. They also sent fridge magnets, some of which are still on our downstairs freezer.
