Book/CD Recommendations Meme

This is a meme. The instructions are as follows:

1. Go to Amazon.com. Log in to your account if you're not automatically logged in.
2. Click on the tab marked "[Your Name]'s store."
3. It should say, "Your Recommendations are based on X items you own." If X is less than 20, click on "Recommendations Wizard" and go through the Wizard repeatedly until you've entered at least 20 items you own. Try copying names from your LJ interests list.
4. Then, copy and paste into your LiveJournal the first 20 recommendations in each subcategory by authors/bands/etc. that you AREN'T already familiar with, for people to tell you whether they're good or not. Don't include items by anyone you already own other things by.
