Automating the Amazon "manage your kindle" page

Threaded View
I am rusty in using Perl - not much programming since I retired in 2007.  

But when I find something that is tedious in computer use, I wish I were st
ill on top of using perl. Is it even feasible to try to program a script/mo
dule to automate the "manage your kindle" page?  I use the library e-book s
ervice a lot, but it is a real pain to "return" and "delete from library" a
 series of books, since there is no "mark" and "take action" type service.

If it is feasible, in which direction should start?

WWW::Mechanize would be a good start, unless the page relies on
JavaScript. In that case you could try WWW::Scripter or WWW::Selenium:
Scripter has its own JS and DOM implementation in Perl; Selenium
actually runs a remote-controlled instance of a real browser, but
requires the Selenium server to be installed.
