It seems a lot of you are taking us up on our new special at Amazon (if you preorder our new History of the World book, we'll give you a free 6-month subscription to the magazine). For anyone who ordered, we just wanted to say thank you! In the past few days, we've risen from the hundred-thousands to #38 on Amazon, which puts us just ahead of such Western classics as the I Can Has Cheeseburger book (#41) and Ted Nugent's Ted, White and Blue (#47). Of course, we're still way, way behind Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World (why didn't we think of a librarian cat narrating history to the world?!). While we have no idea what any of this rankings stuff means, we do sincerely want to thank you guys for preordering. It means a lot to us, and it's very much appreciated. For anyone who hasn't picked up a copy of the book just yet, act fast! The deal's still running over at Amazon.
