I've told you how much I love Amazon.com, right? Well, I do. I order everything I can from them, because it's easier and usually cheaper, and I even have a credit card that gives me extra money back from them. But mostly I HATE standing in line at the nearest Duane Reade because they are unbelievable slow. One block away from our apartment, and it feels like forever whenever I go in to pick up toothpaste; every time a little part of me dies. So I now order toothpaste from Amazon. Ok, end rant.
The point is, since I was recommending lots of stuff I bought there, I made this cool aStore thing, so if you're looking for some cookbook I refer to, or tool I use for making cocktails, or other random gadget, chances are I got it at Amazon and I may have put it in my aStore. I'll embed one in this post, doesn't quite fit but you can scroll in it, or just go to this link. (There's also a thing in the sidebar to the right.) I've put some cookbooks, and kitchen gadgets, and other stuff in there. It's far from comprehensive (ie no toothpaste), but generally if I order something I like, I'll try to put it in there if I think it may be of general interest. It's true I get a kickback to use to buy more stuff from them, but I mostly did it because I think it's cool, and it's an easy way for me to go back if I want to pick up a second item I've gotten before. Anyway, if you're in need of an xmas gift for someone, browse away.
