What was the first book ever ordered by a customer on Amazon?


John Wainwright: I think I'm the customer mentioned in the other answers,
I did indeed buy Hofstadter's Fluid Concepts on April 3rd, 1995 (it's still in my order history listing!). I'd heard that I might be the first non-employee customer, but could not get it confirmed..... D. Kreft, Amazonian since 1999 The really funny behind-the-scenes part is that the book wasn't on hand when Mr. Wainwright ordered it...so rather than disappoint his first customer, Jeff had to buy the book from a local bricks-and-mortar bookstore.
