Amazon just sent me an advert for my own book

They must've noticed I keep looking at it but never buy it. Why can't they send the advert to people who don't look at it instead?

Don't be silly, what's the point in sending an advert to someone who might actually want to buy the book. If you keep looking at it , then it shows that you are interested in it, maybe they are thinking that you are waiting for a price reduction, or a special offer.

I keep looking at my own book, but never had an advert for it.

Yes. Amazon (UK) send "you may be interested in..." type e-mails frequently.

I never get them, because I opted out (Your Account page -> E-mail Preferences & Notifications). There is a "Do not send me marketing e-mail" radio button, which is what I have selected. Alternatively, you can pick & choose what e-mails you want to receive.

I've gotten a few emails like that from Amazon too (though not about a book I wrote) and I am in the US. Sometimes I'll look over a DVD set or a book and a little while later Amazon sends out an ad about this selection of books (or this DVD set) which includes the one I was looking at.
