Background:

I want to learn a bit more about myself so I realized, why not “scrape” my own personal data and see what I can learn or at least visualize. My first foray will be into studying my Amazon web purchases. For better or for worse, Amazon has made it incredibly easy to purchase anything I need. But it all began with books. So lets take a look at the data I can “scrape” on my book purchase history. I say “scrape,” but it’s all readily available to download from my Amazon user account. I just went to my Amazon Account page, clicked on “Download order reports,” and selected a date range that included my entire Amazon history.
