Each month, we look at the books purchased by readers of TBP.

This is hardly an objective or fair  list — thy tend to include items I have mentioned (and can therefore track at Amazon). Additionally, this list itself has become somewhat incestuous, as appearance here leads to more sales, which leads to next month’s appearance here. Its totally anonymous — I don’t know who bought what — but there’s lots of data on the various books generated.

One Caveat: Josh crushed all comers in March, but that also reflects February preorders that shipped last month. (That’s why he is number 1 with a bullet!).

In order, these were the most popular TBP books for March (ties are ordered by author last name):
