Sharing a Kindle account

I have discovered that sharing a Kindle account with family members can cause Amazon to prompt me with the oddest reading suggestions:

I suppose you never really know someone until you see what they read. It's possible that my reading choices are also involved in the determination of these recommendations. However, if Jack Reacher novels and Steal Like an Artist result in these recommendations, it just makes me wonder about the algorithm. Ha!

Lol! They must have a greyish algorithm that shades in 50 popular trends.

I still think my LOTD post on this thread is one of the better Amazon misfeatured algorithms.

Snicker...(nice play on words Joel). And I absolutely agree with your LOTD post!
