You Guys Are Wonders

Checking the Amazon sales charts will eventually be the death of me, so I’ll cut back, but I couldn’t help but notice that at 8 o’clock this morning Faith and Fear in Flushing: An Intense Personal History of the New York Mets had risen to No. 7 on the Baseball Essays & Writings [1] list, which made me very happy because I could hear Tom Hanks as Mr. White, the manager of the Wonders from one of my all-time favorite movies, That Thing You Do! [2], practically whispering in my ear:

As of tomorrow morning, you Wonders… you’ve got the No. 7 record in the country.

Not that I’m striving to be a one-hit wonder, but when you’ve had no hits to date, it’s pretty heady.

(FYI, one of the books ahead of mine is a basketball book, but never mind that right now.)

Thanks to all of you who helped shoot FAFIF [3] up the chart so quickly. I truly appreciate that thing you did.

Please continue to spread the word that pre-ordering is on via Amazon [4]Barnes & Noble [5] and other [6] fine online retailers. (And if you haven’t it ordered for yourself yet, you know what thing to do.)
