Notes from JWR:

My sincere thanks for making the Book Bomb Day a great success! When I last checked, my new book was ranked at #4 in’s overall book rankings. Only the new Dan Brown novel, the upcoming Sarah Palin book, and Glenn Beck’s book are ranked higher. How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It is also ranked #1 in the Survival Skills category, #1 in the Technology & Society category, #1 in the General & Reference category, and #2 in nonfiction books. Thanks again! At this rate, the publisher will soon have to order a second printing. (The first printing was 20,000 copies.)

OBTW, so that Amazon doesn’t get all the business, be advised that there are many other outlets for How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It. These sources include:

Barnes & Noble



Indie Bound – This is a coalition of independent booksellers. While they don’t sell directly from the web site, they direct customers to their nearest independent bookstore. The customer enters a zip code to find the nearest independent bookseller, then the customer can order through that specific seller’s site, or go pick it up at the store. Support you local book store!

My book should also soon be available soon as a regularly-stocked item at “bricks and mortar” bookstores.

Once again, thank you!
