The Book Depository’s real-time bookselling map.

[From the vaults at]

“Wanna see what books everyone else is buying? Literally second by second?”

The Book Depository is an online bookstore in the UK with free shipping worldwide.


And as if that weren’t enough, their website features one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen on the world wide web, a map that shows what books people from what countries are buying from the Book Depository in real time. Go here, immediately, to take a look, but only if you’re prepared to be mesmerized.


While I was writing this post, someone in Singapore bought Tokyo Nobody, someone in Italy bought Robot Snap, someone in Australia bought Percy Jackson and the Something Labyrinth, and someone in Portugal bought Beautiful Eyes. I could watch this page all day.
