The World Is Your Bookstore

Like this enthusiastic columnist for the Guardian, we are unrepentant book voyeurs. This means we’re not simply satisfied with asking acquaintances what they’re reading: we’re the ones craning our necks to see what books people on the bus or at the next cafe table over have open on their laps. Now, thanks to The Book Depository’s interactive map, we can very easily see what people are buying all over the world—in real time. We’d say more about this, but instead we’re going to watch the map for the next nine hours. Look! Someone in Latvia just bought Cutting For Stone!
