I always find it interesting to see which books TBP readers are buying.
In addition to throwing off minor referral revenue, the Amazon embed code lets me track every click from these links — how many people look at the page, how many books gt collectively purchased.
Its anonymous — I don’t know who bought what — but there’s lots of data on the various books generated.
