Those of us who made purchases from Amazon in December last year, helped make it the "Best Ever" for Amazon. The recent holiday season was the best in the company's 12-year history with its busiest day being December 11. On this day, Amazon customer orders exceeded four million items.

The busy December 11 day also saw 3.4 million packages sent to customers over 200 countries including 100,000 to US military addresses overseas. Amazon has operations in Britain, France, Germany, Japan and Canada. Videogame consoles including Nintendo DS Lite, the PlayStation2 and the Xbox 360 made up the popular items. New Super Mario Bros, Brain Age and Madden football were the popular videogames.

    Interesting! I've only ever bought 1 item from Amazon.UK!! And that was just for 1 song from an Albert Hammond CD that I could NOT find anywhere else in the whole world, anywhere!!

    "Woman of the World"

  2. LB, Albert Hammond, I only know one or two of his songs but the titles escape me now but "Woman of the World" is not familiar to me. That must have been some song for you to be looking all over for it. Will you be able to put it on your blog? Don't bother if it's too much of a hassle.
