A fun statistic for readers who use my amazon links

Many thanks to those of you who have been using my Amazon.com links or the boxes on the sidebar!  In particular thanks to the people who go into amazon and do shopping other than for the book or object I have highlighted.

When I look at the stats for clicks and sales, etc., I am amazed at the huge range of things which are ordered.  Of course I cannot tell who orders anything or where the stuff goes, but the variety of things reflects normal daily needs and also a pretty rich intellectual life.

For example, here are a few items I saw in the list – again, I cannot tell who orders what or where it goes.

  • Handbook of Neurosurgery
  • Graduale Romanum [hurray!]
  • 12 Madagascar Vanilla Beans
  • Levi’s Boys 8-20 505 Straight Regular Jean, Armor, 14 R
  • Alec Guinness: The Authorised Biography
  • Orka Silicone Tagine, Black [I had to look that one up to see what on earth it was.  I figured it was something for the kitchen, but… now I know.  Want one?  Click HERE.]

By far, the most clicks and the most sold was the great book by Edward Feser, The Last Superstition: a reputation of the new atheism.

Since I posted about that book there have been 2165 clicks on the link and over 50 copies have been sold!  I’m impressed.

We are making the world smarter book by book.

I wish I had a way to see what sort of Mystic Monk Coffee people were drinking as they read Feser’s Book.   Or more like… the Handbook of Neurosurgery.
