It’s hard not to look at the sales page for the LCK every hour, but that way madness lies. But a bunch of people have ordered it; I love each and every one of them.

It’s interesting to see this on the Amazon listing:

Amazon.com Sales Rank: #1,974 in Books (See Bestsellers in Books)

Popular in these categories: (What’s this?)

#5 in Books > Reference > Words & Language > Linguistics
#5 in Books > Nonfiction > Social Sciences > Linguistics
#42 in Books > Nonfiction > Education > Reference

#1974 out of 2 million sounds pretty good, no?  And #5 in linguistics!  Sure enough, the bestsellers in linguistics page shows the LCK right there, beating out books by Noam Chomsky, Daniel Everett, and Mortimer Adler.  What this shows, however, is that Amazon must calculate these things with sales per day or something, and that we’re in a pretty small niche, with sales in the double digits.  (It also seems to show that what the Amazon public clamors to know is E-Z Spanish… four of the top six sellers are aids for Spanish learners.)
