Saved Items--To Buy Later

That's how Amazon UK puts it when you view your “Shopping Basket”.

I find it very interesting to peruse the items I decided not to buy right then… considering that right then was somewhere between November 2004 and February 2005. I came to California a few months later, and since then most of my purchases come from Amazon US. It's a forced view into the books I felt like reading and the CDs I had heard were good, and more music by artists I already enjoyed.

It's also somewhat interesting that Amazon never forgets: my cookies are always fresh, my lists never go away, and — if I'm willing to put in the clicks — everything I ever bought is there, somewhere.
