Books Whose Rankings I Have Looked Up Today on

My own, of course: 338,293


Book has languished in the cellar — 1,xxx,xxx — for most of this year. Suddenly last night, have moved from abysmal to “not bad”. WHAT HAS HAPPENED?

Did someone decide to order a batch for Christmas give-aways? Unlikely. After all, San Francisco Chronicle Book Reviewer Anhoni Patel has suggested that my publisher “include a margarita with every copy” because “you will need it.”– HA HA HA HA!

Can it actually be possible that some teacher out there is using it as a text? Whatever the case may be, find ranking of 338,293 to be fairly acceptable (ONLY 299,000 books ahead of me, from the millions and millions in the cyber-store — !!!)

And, here’s the ranking for Eric Schlosser’s follow-up to Fast Food Nation:

Reefer Madness: Sex, Drugs and Cheap Labor on the American Black Market: 108,360


Gap between myself and Mr. Schlosser not that large, might even be infintesimal — ONLY 200,000 books between us, after all!! And HIS publisher is mighty Houghton Mifflin — !!!

Give myself tremendous pat on the back. Will now go back to grading English 1A papers with renewed sense of purpose.
