Just found a very odd new searching tool on Amazon.com

it's called "statistically improbable phrases" that are listed near the top of the page of some of the books.
It's extremely bizarre, because it picks phrases from the book that I guess are suppose to connect you with other books.
It somewhat seems to work for non-fiction books, but for fiction it can be quite misleading from the phrases
that are picked/highlighted.

I like the oddity of the phrases that it does pick though!
Would anyone else be interested enough in exchanges of the unusual finds of the phrases?

this journal had many examples.
