‘Dewey’ Rises in Sales

Although Dewey slips to #3, from #1 last week, on the 11/30 NYT Nonfiction bestseller list, the book actually increased in sales. The Wall Street Journal bestseller list shows it went from a sales index of 31 to 37 this week (the sales index shows relative sales of books. The calculation is ingenious, but probably only of interest to statisticians. If you really care, go to the list and click on “How the index is calculated”).

The number 1 title, Artie Lange’s Too Fat to Fish, came in with a sales of index of 102, shooting it to the top.

Dewey would so hate being bested by a fish.
