They do actually make an attempt at showing you ads they think you want to see. They frequently know a surprising amount about you by the time the ad hits your eyes. There are a whole bunch though that are just displayed to about everyone everywhere though. Those ones tend to be the most annoying.

Believe it or not, some of us actually prefer the feel, texture, and overall appearance of a BOOK. eBooks are nice and all but even when they're printed, they're no where near the same. I will admit: seeing all these Bargain Book stores around Ann Arbor and Lansing, MI selling Borders property for $.25 a piece really has quadrupled my book collection. I may die before I ever get a chance to read all of them. :)

It's a shame Amazon doesn't sell physical books then. Oh wait... http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/books
