I tend to agree.  I like seeing sales numbers because it gives me an idea of what is possible.  But establishing clubs, categories and levels...  not so much.
Yeah, it's a bit of the old traditional publishing psyche seeping in.

To me, all of this is just for fun.  I don't take it as a negative thing.

My totals were over 2600 with at least one book selling over 1000.

One thing to keep in mind, Barnesandnoble.com is updating slowly.  I just had a slew of new sales reported for December 25 and 26th this morning so the totals for everyone selling over there is probably even higher than what they thought.

What a wonderful idea.

I had a great December, sold 1932 copies of Maids of Misfortune: A Victorian San Francisco Mystery, most of them on Kindle. :) :) :) :)javascript:void(0);

Dude.  I actually saw my doppelganger once. 

I was at King's Dominion amusement park in Richmond, VA.  This guy and I walked by each other and both did a double take.  I could tell he was thinking the same thing I was, "That guy looks exactly like me." 

Weird experience.  Kinda wished I'd stopped him for a quick chat and a photo, but I was too freaked out at the time.

You know, they say everybody has somebody who they look exactly alike. That's cool you bumped into him!

I went to high school with mine. We could attend each others classes and the teachers were never the wiser. In fact, even when I was attending class as "me", oftentimes the teachers would still call me Anna...and the same thing would happen to her.

If it's just 1000 (rather than 10,000) that sold above, then PORTAL (as a single unit) did.

I didn't think I'd see my name on this list anytime before getting 3 or 4 more books out.  It's mostly thanks to B and N, though. 

By the way, does anyone know how to go back and check last month's sales there on Pubit?  I can't find my reports for last month anywhere.

Holly, I think I answered that somewhere else.  PubIt's dropdown menu is currently defaulting to Dec 2011, for some reason.  Go to the dropdown menu and go to Dec 2010, and you should find your report.

None of my dropdown menus are working and never have since they went to this new report form.  ARGH!!!!   >:(

Weird, Karen.  Did you try another browser?  I'm using Firefox, and it seems to be working okay for the most part.

Ditto.  My dropdown menu is a blank box right now, with no options whatsoever.  That's why I can't find my Dec. 2010 report (or any report, for that matter.)

Sorry to get off topic.

Based only on my Amazon U.S. numbers, I have one book that sold over 1000 copies this month.  If we're adding in the B&N numbers too, then I *think* I have two (the B&N numbers seem to change all the time).

Hi Robin!
I sold a total of 22,285 books which I think puts me in Platinum! Woo Hoo!!
Thanks for doing this!

Well done, HP. I bought two of your books. One several months ago, and one a couple days ago. (Both from the same series.)

Crack-Up sold over a thou in December.

How many more must we add to the list before we email it to the Big Six and make 'em shudder in their shoes?

As you noticed, I got rid of the catgories since there was such an outcry. I "think" the list is up to date now - let me know if I missed you.
