Where is the "Sign In" on Amazon.com?

I always stumble when signing in to Amazon (I may be the only one, I don't
know).
Does anyone have any background information on why they chose to break with
convention (for signing in)?

Interaction Design Exercises (Amazon's Gold Box)

I have four guesses.

1. Same as Dave. An awareness tool to show people that there's more than
books and CDs on Amazon.
2. A clearance tool for items that are glutting up the warehouse.
3. A research tool to gauge what types of items customers are -really-
interested in.

Concordance... for the love of words and stats

This is interesting... Amazon has this new feature:

*Concordance*

Concordance is an alphabetized list of the most frequently occurring words
in a book, excluding common words such as "of" and "it." The font size of a
word is proportional to the number of times it occurs in the book. Hover
your mouse over a word to see how many times it occurs, or click on a word
to see a list of book excerpts containing that word.

I discovered it when I moused over the front cover image on the book page.
