It’s Amazing Even Harry Potter Sells Any Books

Jeff Jarvis strikes again. I know my brother Jeffrey blogged [2] about him recently. And we reference him in connection to his "Dear Mr. Dell" post  in "Waiting For Your Cat To Bark? [3]".

This time Jeff blogs about some terrifying statistics about the book market. Did you know that 58% of the US adult population never reads another book after high school? It gets worse than that. Only read his post if you want to spend the weekend depressed [4].

We know roughly how few books it took  for us to hit #1 on the Wall Street Journal’s Business best-seller list [5] this week.

Are you as concerned about this active illiteracy as we are?
