‘Dewey’ Defeats ‘Edgar’

As a result of yesterday’s CBS Sunday Morning story on Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World (CBS did not post the segment on their site, so we can’t give you a link) the book rose to #5 on Amazon’s besteller list, well ahead of Oprah pick, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle, which is at #10.

We have to acknowledge, however, that the regular edition of Edgar (not the Oprah-stickered edition) appears at #19. It is possible that if the sales of both editions were added up, that Edgar would be much closer to Dewey.
