amazin

(By which I mean, 'Oh no! Oh no! This is so the thin edge of an unbelievably massive wedge and how could I even have checked it, am I some kind of utter insanonaut?')

After the pre-sale of a literal (putative) book saw KSC ripping its way up the Amazon charts a few weeks ago and into the mid-hundreds of thousands, it was gently subsiding towards the coveted 'millionth most popular book on Amazon' slot, which I was looking forward to telling you about. But at some point between 970,000 and now, I think upwards of three people* must have ordered copies, because the book has rocketed (no other word is even vaguely appropriate) to 32,000 or so.

*Or someone might have ordered three copies.
