Amazon.com Forest

I have a problem. I am an amazon.com addict. I shop amazon.com DAILY for things I "need" very desperately. And apparently my problem is pretty public because I get teased every day I am online.
"What are you gonna buy today Logan?"
"Whatcha shoppin' for buddy?"
I really don't buy that much, or at least I don't think so. Upon review of my amazon account, I have only purchased 9 items in the past 6 months. That's only an average of 1.5 items a month.
Let's have a look at my purchase list and you decide if I am being excessive.
(Reverse order, oldest first)

  • 1 of: Eat This Not That: Thousands of Simple Food Swaps That Can Save You 10, 20, 30
    Sold by: smokymtnbooks
I'm fat. No brainer why I'd buy a book like this, right?
  • 1 of: Battery Pack for Compaq Presario M2000, V2000, V4000, Hewlett Packard Pavilion dv1000, dv4000, dv5000, ze2000 and Business Notebook NX4800, NX7200 ser
    Sold by: Northparts
Needed a new laptop battery, as the old one was only lasting for 3-5 minutes.
  • 1 of: Hey, Whipple, Squeeze This: A Guide to Creating Great Advertising (Adweek...
    Sold by: indoobestsellers
I needed this for school, for the creative track; so shove it.
  • 1 of: SanDisk Sansa m240 1 GB MP3 Player (Silver)
    Sold by: reforger_com
My wife didn't use her iPod much so I sold it and used the money to buy me a new one. I felt bad so I bought her a cheap on for the gym or for when she walks the dogs. She's still never even touched it.
  • 1 of: The Abs Diet: The Six-Week Plan to Flatten Your Stomach and Keep You Lean for...
    Sold by: sortfloorbooks
Again...fat. No brainer. (I'm on this diet now and I really like it, so lets hope this pays off team!)
  • 1 of: 11-Tools-in-1 Stainless Steel Credit Card Survival Tool for Wallet or Purse...
    Sold by: anacondatools_wholesale
Any tool that brings me closer to McGyver-hood is worth ANY cost.
  • 1 of: The Wreck of the Zephyr [Hardcover] by Van Allsburg, Chris
    Sold by: _athenaeum_
This is the first book I ever remember reading as a child. I wanted to savor the memories again. I did a report with colored pencils I remember.
  • 1 of: 3.5mm RCA Audio Video AV Cable for iPod
    Sold by: Gadget Dweeb
Double-digit dollar signs for a video-out cable for my Microsoft Zune?! Whatever, I go cheap!
  • 1 of: Monster Cable RadioPlay Car Stereo Wireless FM Transmitter (MBL-FM XMTR)
    Sold by: Digital Media Source
I paid $10 mother-freakin' dollars for a cheap-o FM transmitter for my Zune and it sucks. I have a $70 one for my iPod, but I traded the iPod for the Zune! This should solve my in-car music issues once and for all.

So judge me; go ahead. I NEEDED these things!

I really have to chuckle at how markedly our Amazon order histories differ. The only things I've ordered in the past 6 months are thick textbooks with titles like "Pathologic Basis of Disease" and "Neuroanatomy for the Practicing Clinician." I'm such a geek... but hopefully it's going to make me a lot of money someday. :)
