A Twitch upon the Thread

I got an email from Amazon this morning that said:
Are you looking for something in our Biographies store? If so, you might be interested in these items.

* The Seven Storey Mountain
* Apologia Pro Vita Sua
* An Infinity of Little Hours: Five Young Men and Their Trial of Faith in the Western World's Most Austere Monastic Order
* A Thomas Merton Reader
How on earth did they come up with that? Are there Jesuitical algorithms these days? "I caught him, with an unseen hook and an invisible line which is long enough to let him wander to the ends of the world, and still to bring him back with a twitch upon the thread."
