What I appreciate from that list is that (a) book reviews [of stats books] get a large chunk (50%!) of the attention and (b) my favourite topics of Bayesian testing, parallel MCMC and MCMC on zero measure sets made it to the top list. Even the demise of the Bayes factor that was only posted two weeks ago!
