Once again, its time to peruse the data to see which books TBP readers bought last month. Amazon’s embed code lets me track every click from these links — how many people look at the page, how many books get seen, and/or collectively purchased.

Its anonymous — I don’t know who bought what — but there’s lots of data on the various books generated.

These were the most popular TBP books for October:

Go the F**k to Sleep [2] (Adam Mansbach)

Black Monday: The Catastrophe of October 19, 1987 . . . and Beyond [3] (Tim Metz)

Bull by the Horns: Fighting to Save Main Street from Wall Street and Wall Street from Itself [4] (Sheila Bair)

Dark Pools: High-Speed Traders, A.I. Bandits, and the Threat to the Global Financial System [5] (Scott Patterson)

Underwater Dogs [6] (Seth Casteel)
