It's a mystery how Amazon targets the Vine newsletters for each individual and no one gets the same newsletter either. I haven't seen anything for months on Vine that remotely interested me, nor have I posted any vine reviews in quite a while (only one sitting unread and undone) so I was surprised to find something today. Too bad I only buy books I might actually get offered some of the electronics and treadmills :)

...And then just now I bout EC's The Love Knot through BD. I have a sickness, lol.

Has anyone seen their "watch people shop" feature? I've just spent the last five minutes watching it.

At least you can't give us something we don't already have (since I think we all suffer from the exact same disease)!

The watch people shop feature is hypnotising isn't it!

I already have the Robin book, so I passed on that.

The latest Anne B. book was on the vinelist, but not on my newsletter.

I get a ton of YA books, but none of which called to me so I passed on all of em.

Remarkable creatures is her latest book. Never heard of it, myself.

BTW the vine is up this Tuesday.
