    Can make a head or tail of why this domain just sold for such an exorbitant amount. Possible SEO or niche-related.

    Please give your humble opinion!

    You can say u niche is aforementioned above;
    and “book” is a metaphor for “knowledge”..

    Let’s ask @jberryhill;
    seems broad enough imo... “book” knowledge

    i think a couple would slip and go to;

    thebooks (.)com instead of thebook (.)com

    These minor problems, tho singular is shorter.

    book.com??

    you’d have to be a millionaire.

    That’s why it’s not conceivable. Most would go;

    [word]book works; nothing beats “The” ; )

    Personally, my first assumption about this was THE book, be it Bible, Torah, Koran etc.

    Perhaps 'book' is now subconsciously associated with 'bookings' by many?
