WEIT makes New York Times Best Seller list

February 5, 2009 • 2:32 pm

A bit of a brag–my editor has informed me that WEIT has made the New York Times’s extended best seller list in non-fiction: number 31. Not something I ever imagined would happen, but it’s really nice. Now begins the futile race to catch up with “Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Changed the World.” See Dewey’s story here, and if you MUST buy this nefariously competing tome, do so here. Dewey stands at #3, and received a multimillion dollar advance. There is no competing with cat books. I begged my editor to put a kitten on the cover, but for some obscure reason she refused.

  1. Hi Jerry. I’m looking forward to getting your book. Actually, I’m a bit surprised that your blog isn’t more trafficked than it appears to be according to comment numbers. One thing I have noticed is the lack of links to it from other science blogs and/or skeptic blogs. Maybe you should do a little reciprocal linking? Also, for some reason, everybody seems to be blogging about your book and/or your review of Gibberson’s and Miller’s books. But oddly, none of the posts seems to point out your blog. I honestly think not very many people know about it.

    1. Thanks for calling this to my attention. Link fixed so you can read about Dewey–a very endearing story.

  2. Jerry, congratulations on getting into the New York Times Best Seller List: it’s no more than your excellent book deserves, I’ll finish my copy this evening and I have thoroughly enjoyed every page.

    By the way, when you get a second, can you fix your RSS title? πŸ™‚
