I don't fully understand the psychology behind this. Would someone
be more likely to buy an item just because is it mentioned in a
forum. There are similar sites that mine HN for the books that are
mentioned here. Can some ELI5 to me?

Just another affiliate scraper, nothing more, or less.

It also links to the posts, so this seems like it be nice for
hobby related subreddits to see what the usuals recommend. Think
calligraphy or cooking. Or even scholarly subreddit a like math
and see some interesting books that people have brought up.

Does this link are of amazon products only?

Yes, amazon dominates the product links, so it was easiest to
start with that. In the future though, I'd love to add more.

Amazon provides the affiliate revenue, so Amazon products are
what gets linked. I'm not opposed to the business model, I use
affiliate links to monetize my site, too. But it does seem silly
to shy away from admitting that this is trying to make some money
from the links.

This would be interesting if it wasn't just live. Eg, if I could
select a time period to show the most popular stuff from. Also a
better way of discovering subs to browse, rather than having to
know exactly what you're looking for. Perhaps an r/all equiv, but

As someone who frequents /r/watches, I appreciate this. But it
would be great to see prices more easily highlighted.

I'd be curious to see the success of this with Amazon Affiliates,
since it is nearly a direct copy of a site I made 2 months ago
(that Amazon shut down due to lack of original content). The site
is https://fastandes.com (currently at limited functionality).
