The phone call came in today: Coraline is up two places to #8 on the New York Times children's bestseller list. And by the way, it's already in its eighth printing, fifteen days after publication...

And while I'll continue posting links to some of the reviews, I think I'll stop doing the bestseller list and the back-to-press stuff, otherwise I worry that this journal is going to turn into "blah blah blah Coraline... blah blah bestseller... blah blah tenth printing... blah blah Nobel Peace Prize blah blah blah.... blah blah small south sea island elected me King on the basis of being big Coraline fans blah blah blah..." and get very very boring very quickly.
