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 June:

Choose Yourself! (James Altucher)
Bailout Nation (Barry Ritholtz)
Coaching Questions: A Coach’s Guide to Powerful Asking Skills (Tony Stoltzfus)
Life Coaching Activities and Powerful Questions: A Life Coaching Activities Workbook! (Phyllis E Reardon)
Philosophy: Who Needs It (Ayn Rand)
The Creature from Jekyll Island: A Second Look at the Federal Reserve (G. Edward Griffin)
The Paradox of Choice: Why More Is Less (Barry Schwartz)
Thinking, Fast and Slow (Daniel Kahneman)
Poor Charlie’s Almanack (Peter D. Kaufman)

    Would you be willing (assuming you know) to put an actual number to some of these purchases?

    Purely out of curiosity on my part. I can’t think of much actual value I could derive from the info, other than as a possible motivation to write a book myself!

    I only need one number on one book.

    And yes, I’ve read your calculation of your pay per hour on your own efforts. Very illuminating.

    But hope springs eternal!
