The Site
One of the simpler to navigate sites on the internet, Amazon set the standard for e-commerce. The whole site is the Yahoo.com of the internet Business world with its hundreds of book directories. This is not a site though that you can spend 40 hours in, it is like a store in the mall, you go in get what you want and leave. The best part of the overall site is the the fact that it is so complete. For example we went on and searched the following word ..peanut...
these were the results

  • Life and Times of the Peanut -- Charles Micucci; School & Library Binding

    Design
    As I stated earlier Amazon.com is a definite plain Jane of internet design. If your looking for design go check out eyecandy.com, if you want to buy a book come here. Most of the time I believe content rules the halls and I have to agree here. There's just so much text in amazon.com that it would be hard to make it graphically heavy and let it be pleasing to the eye. Once again lets reference our friend The Life and Times of A Peanut for a picture of the book as provided by Amazon.com... 

    Ordering
    Well its not hard to realize what makes the internet shopping experience a little different then your local shopping mall experience. Besides the annoying people walking on the wrong side of the aisles right in front of you, its having to fill out some paper, give them your name, sit around and pray you get your stuff and that no one steals your credit card #. So what can Amazon.com do for you? Well Amazon has your standard "shopping cart". Which is a virtual box that your stuff is put in, in the computers mind. you keep clicking "add to cart" and when your done and you click "proceed to checkout" you are done. Now once there your items will pop up in a list, and you can change the quantity that you want. This is very convenient with Amazon.com. Once there if you are a first time customer you have to sign up or get registered, once you do this once you never have to do it again, it saves your name. You do have to enter your credit card online but amazon.com has one of the most trusted encrypted (secure) servers in the industry. Plus when you come back the next time it will remember your credit card also. Amazon is one of the safest and the easiest places to deal with.

    Overall Assessment
    Hands down. This is the best book seller on the net! Why? Well because it represents all that the internet is. Although other sites may compete they can never take the smirk off of amazon.com's face. They made internet commerce something to be proud of. Amazon.com is a trendsetter that just keeps on setting new standards in this industry.
