Book things

In the spirit of tooting one's own horn....

Top 3

This morning I noticed my OOJS book is #3 in Amazon's JavaScript category, wo-hoo! Then it dropped down but in the evening it's up again. Nice company - OOJS, Doug Crockford's book and David Flanagan's giant Rhino JS book.

Not that I'm obsessed with my Amazon ranking, of course not (yeah, right), but I'm happy when the book sells in the top 25 (first page in the JavaScript bestsellers list). In the good days it's around 10, in exceptionally bad days, drops out of first page. But top 3 - nice! promo
