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 (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.
