Amazon’s trying to make ‘Prime Day’ a thing again.

More power to them and everything, but I don’t think that I’ve ever actually bought anything on ‘Prime Day.’ Usually I go look, and discover that it’s all mostly junk that I don’t particularly want and/or need, at a discount that’s fairly meh anyway. I feel that this is not really compatible with Amazon’s apparent desire to make July 15th an international holiday. Maybe they’re just humoring Jeff Bezos? Because this has all the hallmarks of an operation that is put on solely because the boss insisted.

But don’t mind me. Prime Day away! …Hey, look: neo-hipster sarcasm and too-cool-for-this-stuff is all very well, but referral fees are referral fees.

7102017 Day today, Prime Day Tomorrow!

Today is kind of neat, in a palindrome kind of way: you can write today’s date (July 10, 2017) in numeric form so it’s the same, backwards and forwards (7102017).  Which means nothing in the greater scheme of things, of course.  But it’s still cool.

And tomorrow is Amazon’s Prime Day.  Well, actually today is Prime Day, annnnd there’s a code (PRIMEBOOKS17) for $5 off book purchases over $15.  It’s not five bucks per book, and it’s Amazon-only — but that’s still potentially worth contemplating, yes?

Tomorrow is Prime Day.

Amazon Prime Day, to be specific.  It’s the twenty-year anniversary of Amazon.com, and they’re going to be selling a remarkable amount of stuff to commemorate it, apparently. You will no doubt be surprised to hear that I think that you should go click the above link tomorrow and buy a bunch of the aforementioned stuff.  Shocking, no?
