Impress the book readers you know

Ever have a hard time figuring out what you are going to get someone? Well, I just came up with a super cool net trick that they don’t tell you about.

Most people shop for books on the internet by way of Well, if you know someone buys a pretty good amount of books (or anything else online) then you know them usually make a wishlist. When people add books to their wishlist they are usually books their thinking about getting. Amazon provides a feature to search for someone else’s wishlist. That’s right, wishlists’ are public! You just need their email address.

Look at books in the wishlist, buy the discounted used one that says “New” (and in my experience they are definitely new) . This can sometimes cost you less than a dollar plus shipping. Now you’re a star for knowing them so well.
