Hope that's not going to pop up (excuse the pun!) on my Amazon homepage now that I've click on the link. They have a habit of doing that![/quote]

I didn't know that! :o Thanks goodness, my hubby and I use different computers. Daytripper definitely sounds tongue in cheek (no pun intended.) ;)

Oh my goodness! I think I'm sorry I clicked on that link now. I'm not sure if I dare go back to read the reviews!

And then they give you recommendations based on what you've been looking at!! :p :D

However, I would imagine I'm quite safe as I think the link is to Amazon.com whereas I usually use Amazon.co.uk, so hopefully if won't pop up! Funnily enough, if I look at Amazon on my husband's laptop, it actually shows what I've been looking at but in a different way that it's shown on mine. It must be something to do with the same IP address?

Just go to your Amazon page and click on browsing history. Click on remove that and it will go away.

A matter of Amazonian survival. Otherwise my recommended reads get out of control.
