Kos' Book Sales
Drudge reports the Daily Kos book Crashing the Gate has only sold 3630 in the month since it's been published. There may have been a promotion push today because Amazon has it ranked #25 today when it was #52 yesterday. Glenn Reynolds' An Army of Davids is only ranked #1237. Roger Simon, as of this moment, is wrong. Glenn Reynolds' book isn't selling better. (It all depends on how Amazon calculated its best seller list; something I don't know.) Either Nielsen's Bookscan is not very good at tracking total book sales or Amazon doesn't sell as many books as I thought.
I'm going to agree with John Hinderaker who writes, "I doubt that those data mean anything in particular."
