Note to self: More dogs on the blog

by Scott Smith

The Freaknomics guys have a great blog. Freaknomics is in paperback and is on my must read list.

Here’s their take on the dogs

Note to Self: Put Some Dogs in SuperFreakonomics
from Freakonomics Blog by noemail@noemail.org (Stephen J. Dubner)

With the bookselling year nearly over (though with its best few weeks yet to come), Publishers Weekly has published its list of best-selling books for 2006 to date. The top 3 hardcover novels are:

1. For One More Day, by Mitch Albom
2. Beach Road, by James Patterson
3. Cell, by Stephen King

And the top 3 hardcover nonfiction books are:

1. Marley & Me, by John Grogan
2. Cesar’s Way, by Cesar Millan and Melissa Jo Peltier
3. Freakonomics

In case you don’t know, Marley & Me is about a rascally Labrador retriever and Cesar’s Way is about a super-successful dog trainer.

I can’t help thinking we might have made the top spot if only we had slipped a couple damn dogs into Freakonomics.
