Amazon Data Polling

Does anyone have a clue how to use Amazon’s APIs to pull your purchasing data? For LibraryThing, I want to pull pages with the ISBN numbers of books that I have purchased.

If you look at your account on Amazon, you can look at your entire purchase history but it shows them to you by book order with only the title showing and with only a couple of orders per page. I have a purchase history going back to 1998. If I could pull the ISBN data for that, I would have a fair chunk of my library over the last eight years.

I also want to use it for the program “Books for OS X”, which is an OS X book cataloging program. It can talk to LibraryThing as well.

I’m stumped at how to pull the data though.
