Surprised this wasn't posted. Or if it has, sorry. :)

I'm not exactly sure this really explained it. 5,000 sales doesn't really seem to be enough to get close to a NYT list. And they reference something from 2004 about a boost in sales for people who were on the list.

Erm...I've been on a few lists. I'm not really seeing the lists being the source of the sales. Maybe if I had been on there in 2004.

New covers and second book release: Coming soon!

Vox defending the NYT list is an indication the list is biased in case that hadn't occurred to anyone.
