What does Amazon think it's doing?

Yes, I also thought Amazon was the largest online book marketplace in the world. It may well be. Perhaps there are more new and used and text books listed on Amazon than any other book site. I don’t know. That would be a pretty impressive specialty if it could be proven.

So why then when we go to Amazon do we get an embarrassing display of bad sandals and what look like rip-off designer watches? And a grocery store option for goodness sake? I suppose Amazon thinks it’s cashing in on its fame. It’s apparently trying to be an eBay.co.uk without the auction.

Have you read book about the origins of Amazon ? Amazon: Get Big Fast. Maybe Jeff should read it too. He needs to get right back down to basics.
