Did you know this? I didn’t! Thanks to Anne over at Jenkins Law Library I learned how to edit my Amazon wishlist in a compact way – this may or may not be a new feature.

Last night I was updating my wish list on Amazon and I know that the site didn’t look like it does this morning. In the top right they invite us to see what’s new: Looks prettly slick – guess I’ll need to poke around some and see if it’s more usable – since re-designs are all about improving usability in my book!
