Sidebar: Amazon Clicks and Sales, 3rd Quarter 2000

Amazon thoughtfully provides exact records of every book clicked from Locus Online links and purchased, directly or indirectly, through links from Locus Online. (Don't worry, they don't identify who's bought what!) It's interesting what books are browsed the most, regardless of subsequent sales. Here are rankings by clicks for the third quarter of 2000, July 1st through September 30th. (Results for 2nd quarter were posted, back in July, as Locus Online Bestsellers.) The number of sales -- far smaller -- is also shown.
