That's how many weeks HOTEL has been on the New York Times bestseller list. One year. 8760 hours. I'll let you calculate the seconds if you must (my brain is a little fuzzy at the moment).

That's 52 weeks on the trade paperback list—the printed list, not the extended online version. If you add the weeks on the extended list, the ebook list, the combined list, and toss in the weeks the hardback spent on the bestseller list, it's...oh, I forget.

One year.* It's such a nice round number.

*Not to be confused with Year One, which was a really bad Jack Black movie.

It is great to see this happen for a book that is so well-written, informative, and evocative. We readers out here celebrate with you!

This is great! I'm still boosting Hotel to anyone that will listen. A number of those folks (who HAVE listened) have even let me know they're doing the same thing, so the circle just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

That is so incredible, Jamie. I tell everyone I see about your book, and I've got a co-worker who is anxiously anticipating your next one as well. You've done really well here, so I hope you're still celebrating.
