As a Bibliophile...

I'm finding the Book Depository Live page strangely engrossing.

And kind of calming, lol, a bit like watching fish.

Hehe...your fish reference is so right. It's like watching an aquarium!

How cool. :)

Great link! Kind of mesmerizing...

For fellow bibliophiles, I've got a books blog at: http://tarquintarsbookcase.blogspot.com/

I welcome comments from other lovers of old, rare, and just plain odd books!

That is strangely engrossing. To know that someone just bought that particular book somewhere far away.
I don't know why it's so appealing ... but it is. Weird.

Donna - that's it exactly. lol. And when you've bought a book it will pop you through to that screen and you can watch your flag pop up.

I find it very interesting to see what other people are buying.

Marg - As Amazon UK seem to be finding it harder to get the books I'm after I'm buying more books from BD.
