On The Millions I read an article about the ABCs of amazon. What turns up in the auto complete search field when you enter just a letter? The most searched for terms appear in a drop down list. I thought it might be fun to see what would be the ABC of amazon in Germany when you look in the English book dept. This is what I got today:
Yes, the Brotherhood is very popular over here as well
True Blood hasn’t even been on TV, but already Harris is the top C search term
The Germans love British detective stories
Never heard of him, but his books seem to be whodunits.
Seemingly a teenage fiction series, never heard of it.
It seems a lot of Germans who read English books go for romance…
…and vampire romance
…and romance again
I’m not surprised
Isn’t this PNR as well of some sort, werewolves, I think
…looks like romance again
…here comes the YA variety
There’s a surprise. I reckon it’s the most popular term at the moment because everybody wanted to be prepared for Bloomsday 3 days ago.
what else could be the V word?
Obviously a SF series
I probably contributed to this myself with my eternal search for some manga to read recently
It seems the search for (paranormal) romance and bestsellers is equally popular on .de and .com.
