No, we're not buying each other's books; we're just checking off the existing tags on the book's description page on Amazon and/or Amazon UK. The tag count contributes to Amazon's super-secret search algorithm, bumping us up the list. Sales figures contribute, too, so buying all of each other's book would certainly help, but it'd be a much bigger commitment than a bunch of clicks!
Oh, by the way, I tagged all the new folks who I'd not tagged in other threads.
