What Our Readers Are Reading

We don't usually see what we are seeing this summer....

A good number of readers are purchasing Mafia-related nonfiction lately. (Apparently, the Bonanno crime family is garnering the most interest.)

The No. 1 seller on our Amazon affiliate list.

Understand that this is all based on our informal, highly un-technical review of our Amazon sales data for July and thus far into August. We are only including a list of titles -- not sales data. We will say that we see these kinds of numbers only in December.

Now we say "reading" but, as you'll see below, there's one film that is selling lately. And no, it's not The Godfather. In fact, it came out in 1990 and starred a former standup comedian.

A sizable number of folks are choosing LCN books to bring to the beach with them, in paperback, hardcover, and Kindle formats.

Well, whatever else, you have to admit: it's one of the greatest criminal entities ever created, probably in recorded history.

These are the top 14 books (and one DVD) that our readers have purchased so far this summer, in the order they are selling (meaning the Massino read is no. 1).....

The Last Godfather: The Rise and Fall of Joey Massino

The Mob and the City: The Hidden History of How the Mafia Captured New York

Witsec: Inside the Federal Witness Protection Program

Gotti and Me: A Crime Reporter's Close Encounters With the New York Mafia

My Blue Heaven (1990)

The Mafia Hit Man's Daughter
