Chicago Tribune selects Quiet, Please as this weeks editor's choice selection:
With this week's summer reading recommendations from librarians, one wonders: Who are these characters? In this cleverly written book—a set of stories, really—drawn from his perspective as a California librarian, Scott Douglas brings us into the stacks. "Libraries were the place where people of diverse backgrounds and cultures could come together for the common pursuit of discovering something new," writes Douglas. "Librarians were the people who helped them find this discovery."

Media attention and book sales.

You can look here to see a chart of the sales rank at Amazon for this book. Interesting to see how exposure in different media effects the sale of a book. The author could buy their own book and propel it to #1 that way. (joke)
