Me and J.K. Rowling

Good heavens! Amazon UK reports the Gödel book this morning as 3,069 in the sales ranking. That makes me and J.K. Rowling, who lives permanently at number 1, practically neighbours. I’m preparing myself for the inevitable change of life-style.

Googling around to see what their sales rankings really mean, the answer is that a snapshot ranking means diddly squat. Still ... in the academic philosophy rankings, currently Gödel (at 7) beats the pomos, so that is -- just for the moment! -- cheering.
