Thanks for the great response to my note yesterday on our upcoming annual Prime sign up drive. We’ll kick off later this week. Before then we’ll also be rolling out some key changes to the front page of the site, which our whole team is very excited about. If you haven’t subscribed to Prime yet and you’re a regular reader, please consider doing so in this upcoming drive. It’s very important.
