Amazon Recommends

I've bought a lot of books from Amazon.com over the last few years, and one of their marketing tools is "Amazon recommends" e-mails. They suggest books that are related to the books you've been buying. So, when they send me recommendations for 18th century novels, or novels by women, or books related to language or women's issues or Christianity, I understand. It makes sense. But here's today's recommendation: Mallarme, Manet, and Redon: Visual and Aural Signs and the Generation of Meaning (Cambridge Studies in French).

As Ricky Ricardo would say, 'Splain that.

Oh. Maybe it's because France is near England.
