A Nice Ranking

I’m not so lacking in vanity that I won’t admit to this being nice:
Coffee Shop at the moment is the number one writing book on Kindle (and
#3 writing book of any sort on Amazon). It’s nice while it lasts. And it’s gratifying to see this much interest in a book this far along in its life cycle (it was originally released in 2007, after all). So, thank you, folks. I appreciate it.
Congratulations! And, I’m glad I got my hard copy of the book when I did. It really is a nice looking book.
This is a book I’d be meaning to check out, but unfortunately it will have to wait a little longer: it doesn’t appear in the Kindle store for me (likely because I have region set to “Canada”, being Canadian and all).
So…it that intentional? Or just one of those weird contract things that occasionally annoys us non-USA folks?
Is there any plans for a reprint? I don’t have a kindle and sadly can’t spring $150 for either that or whatever a hard copy is going for on Amazon.
Three books that I need to get. Hopefully these will help me take a step up from POD publishers.
Come on, you must be pretty proud. At least the bank balance should be :)
@Pat not available for me either, unfortunately. My region is Australia.
It’d stay even longer at the top if it was available in the UK as well…
Congrats!!! I’m gonna have to check it out. (Cue Sarcasm) Thanks John for writing ANOTHER book I have to read.
Downloaded it from B&N last night.
One of your e-stalkers, I mean “Valued Readers”, damn!
FWIW, the Kindle editions of the books currently at 2 and 3 on that chart are on sale for a much reduced price at the moment on Amazon.com, so if anyone is thinking of grabbing lots of how-to books for their Kindle, now’s the time. And I very much enjoyed ‘You’re Not Fooling Anyone’, even though I do in fact very much enjoy writing in coffee shops – although they’re usually ones I know are going to be quiet and empty when I’m there.
I just finished reading COFFEE SHOP and I loved it. I read particularly juicy and/or funny bits to my wife.
