interface confusion

I've been trying to find a book to read on inner ring suburb redevelopment. My local library has _Retrofitting Suburbia_, or at least it will once Newton sends it over. In the meantime, I got _Cities and Suburbs_ on the kindle. That means I had to sort through three buttons in order to buy it: rent, buy it for myself (and pick where it should be initially delivered) or buy it as a gift. I think the renting means this is technically a textbook. I accidentally picked the gift button and had to back out, which is a little unfortunate. I doubt I'll make the same mistake twice, but it clearly demonstrates problems associated with so many checkout options. Amazon does a great job; I think this is just part of the cost of Choice.
