My very first thing was a gift card for my parents in 2004. The first tangible item was a college textbook, The Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics, in 2008.

Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson, circa 1999 or so, on the recommendation of these forums. IIRC I also ordered a Hitachi 19" CRT monitor at the same time, as a big Thanksgiving/Christmas present to myself. The monitor sat in the box while I devoured the book in an evening. :crow:

After how much I obsessed about those books, I owe it to myself to sit down and re-read the entire series now that its done. but :effort: and also its a kerjillion books with people named Avenda and Aveinda and its v. important to keep them straight.

I stopped reading around book four or five and I have no regrets about that. The writing is legitimately annoying. I have never read any other fantasy novels that annoyed me. These books suck.

Since you immediately beat my score by a few years (a translated copy of the Swedish book Bröderna Lejonhjärta in 2000 for me!) I am instead going to just encourage you to click "cancel order" there and see what happens

A VHS copy of the amazing Hong Kong movie "Dark Skinned Assassin" that I gave to my friend who probably never watched it and lost it in his hoarder apartment. Also a CD of the album "Maxinequay" which I was never enthusiastic about but still listen to all the time because even when you order a CD on Amazon the songs are automatically installed on any Kindle you buy which is why a bunch of Raffi songs always come up when I listen to music on my kindle.

By 98 they were definitely selling CDs to compete with cdnow.com

Thank you, that worked perfectly. I was surprised the orders actually went that far back, but then realized that actually interacting with them would probably confuse the system, and I am glad to see I am right

I bet you can only actually access orders from the last like five years or something

That's the earliest on my account, but I know I had ordered a season or two of Buffy using my mom's account before that. I think my first internet purchase ever was '96 or '97 on eBay. I bought some Looney Tunes box set of Pez dispensers from some guy in Australia back when I collected those.

In 2007 I bought my mom a gift card so she could buy some books because she likes reading.

I have a friend who met his wife by matching interests and messaging her on facebook.

I had a firstname.lastname gmail account.

I miss that internet.
