* Yes, after 10 consecutive weeks, the book is nowhere to be found in the Top 10. But that's OK because:

a) Unlike, say, the film box-office or pop singles chart, what goes down can come up again. Witness the case of Kam's and Zaid's books, which were both not around last week.

b) 5,000 copies in the first three months is quite good what.

c) I own five of the books here, and I am glad others are buying them too.
