Amazon’s Recommended for you feature

Here’s something I wish Amazon’s “recommended for you” lists could do*:

– Allow me to mark authors, actors, musicians, etc. whose publications I’d like to follow. And put the material from these on my list. Easy, and in one place. Not having to go everywhere to figure out when all the authors I like have new books out.

– Allow me to, similarly, mark authors, actors, musicians, etc. whose publications I don’t particularly want to follow and avoid putting their material on my recommendation list.

This entry brought to you by “Just because I’ve said I liked, and owned Stargate, doesn’t mean I particularly care for the StarTrek exploits, or any other Sci-Fi television series.” “Just because I liked Ocean’s 11, doesn’t mean I want to buy Tom Cruise’s films.”

I do like the slightly random feel of the list, and I have encountered some stuff on them that I wouldn’t normally do, so the above would be about improving the existing ones.

Also, I’m still missing the “Unrated” option on “Improve your recommendations” that they took away a couple of years ago. Anyone have a trick to this one?

*)If Amazon can already do this, than please let me know.
