An Amazon embarrassment
There is an imminent catastrophe in my life. On Amazon, e-luv is in freefall, and was last seen hovering around the 230,000 mark. My friend Kevin had his book published 4 years ago - it was a collection of photos taken during Manchester City's last season at their old ground. As I was on Amazon, I decided to check what its ranking was - and to my horror discovered that it was in 239,000th place - closing in on e-luv. This is distressing on several counts:
1. Despite being a fabulous book, it DID come out 4 years ago. Most books have disappeared without trace after this time. Mine has been out 6 months and is already disappearing without trace.
2. He will waste no opportunity to let me know that his book is doing better than mine.
I beg of you - buy e-luv. Even if you've already bought it. Please.
