Freakonomics checks out the most surprising Amazon (AMZN - Get Report) best-seller it's ever seen.

Both The Average Joe Investor and One Guy's Investments look at what is probably one of the most unusual acquisitions I've seen, the acquisition of Click Commerce (CKCM) by Illinois Tool Works (ITW - Get Report).

And here's one if you need a bubble wrap fix.

Great post on how to make money from your blog, from A to Z. It's a great post not only if you're a blogger, but also if you're an investor, to see how this industry that was a zero two years ago is quickly growing.

People definitely have a lot of time on their hands.
