If you’re interested in what your fellow readers are reading, below is the best seller list for the last quarter based on what readers of this site ordered through Amazon.com.
I don’t know if you realize or not, but whenever you click onto Amazon.com through this site anything you purchase throws off a few cents, which I use to help maintain this site, pay for the hosting and pay for my web guy to keep things running. The amount I harvest from this each month falls far short of what is required for the above, but it along with the Google ads just about covers the expense. And I appreciate it very much.
When I get the reports from Amazon they simply tally the books ordered and what the commission for this site is. There is no way to identify who ordered what, so if you want to order something naughty, go for it. I’ll never know who it was. (In case anyone is curious, there wasn’t a single X-rated book or video ordered during the entire quarter. I guess readers of this blog have clean minds to go along with their healthy diets.)
The books that sold the most during the quarter were The Protein Power LifePlan and others that MD and I had written or co-written, but I’m not including those on the best seller list because they have an unfair advantage in that it is my site and the icons for those books are the entry portal into Amazon. The best seller list includes only books that MD and I didn’t author or co-author.
Here is the list.
#1 Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes
#2 The Brain Trust Program by Larry McCleary, M.D.
#3 The Great Cholesterol Con by Malcolm Kendrick, M.D.
#4 Stumbling on Happiness by Daniel Gilbert, Ph.D.

There you have it. The books your fellow readers were reading (or at least buying) during the last quarter.
