Wimpy Kid j4

The word is out — USA Today‘s “Book Buzz” column writes today that Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days is coming on October 12th.

Many libraries have it on order with holds building. King County P.L. ordered 313 copies on 6/30 and currently have 107 holds; that’s likely to grow exponentially now that the news is out.

Since many libraries added the book before the title was announced, it appears on those catalogs as Diary of a Wimpy Kid #4.

Currently, the Amazon sales ranking is only #10,867 [UPDATE: Friday, 7/24 — now up to #7,714]. Expect it to rise rapidly.

In what may very well be a first, a “Diary of a Wimpy Kid Dog Days ” 30-day ice cream truck tour begins August 3. It will be stopping at many public libraries, including my alma mater, Baltimore County PL (see site for locations).
