Customers who bought Palin's book also bought...

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

Just now, I stumbled across the Amazon.com page for Sarah Palin's forthcoming, already-bestselling, autobiography Going Rogue: An American Life. The thing about the page that I picked up on, and made a brief observation about on Twitter, was that the price is $9, knocked down from $28.99. That's quite a discount for a book that's not even out yet - no wonder it's already a bestseller.

However, as @rjstelling pointed out to me on Twitter, the most striking thing on that Amazon page is actually the list for what "Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought". I've added a screengrab here, but for a truly frightening insight, I urge you to go and take a look at all 27 items for yourself...

The most amusing thing for me is that if you buy Palin's book, you can get 'Catastrophe' cheaply.

Ha ha, Nick! It would be scarily portentous if we believed in such things! I guess we'll just have to content ourselves with being scared at the very real prospect of her retaining prominence on the US political scene.

Won't some of them be surprised when they read Paine's "Age of Reason"? HAHA

I would have thought, given her fan-base, that only the audio version would sell much.

Customers who bought Palin's book also bought ... My Lobotomy (Paperback), Howard Dully (Author), Charles Fleming (Author), Price: $10.04, You Save: $3.91.

Is there something we should know?
