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.

    Congrats on your book taking the lion’s share of the e-book sector!

    BR – could you possibly do a follow-up entitled The Case Against the SEC, the TBTF banks and the Forces of Evil or some-such to provide the lazy AGs with all the ammunition they’re not gathering so that someone will actually DO SOMETHING about all this? The Occupy people, as well as everyone else would be eternally grateful.

    ditto on the e-reader comment .. I bounced in to see what the price differences were … then had to check who reads Bailout Nation in audio format .. I think it would be cool to have your voice – and I know your busy – SO how long before everything you’ve ever done / each word dissected / respliced with no extra work except Submit to iSpliceApp .. ok / you probably need to record 100 words to finish it out :-)

    For those of you who want audio versions, you can get it now with non-Fire Kindles. They use a text to voice engine that will be familiar to anyone who has listened to the infamous “The Bernank” animations from a few years back. Not the same as a real voice (especially by the author), but functional nonetheless.
