Amazons Jungle Logic

I FIRST heard of Amazon™s new promotion from my bookseller daughter, Emily, in an e-mail with the subject line Can You Hear Me Screaming in Brooklyn? According to a link Emily supplied, Amazon was encouraging customers to go into brick-and-mortar bookstores on Saturday, and use its price-check app (which allows shoppers in physical stores to see, by scanning a bar code, if they can get a better price online) to earn a 5 percent credit on Amazon purchases (up to $5 per item, and up to three items).
