Book Sales

In news that wouldn’t surprise anyone, the NY Times reports that books sales for Bob Woodward’s book, The Secret Man, have been very lackluster. For anyone not in the know, and going by the sales, that’s most of the country, the book deals with story of Deep Throat, not the porno but the secret Watergate source.

This shows you how people in the Washington area think the whole world is interested in what’s going on “inside the beltway.” No one cares about Deep Throat, the source. The porno is, of course, another matter.

The surprising thing to me is not that the sales of book outside the DC area suck, its that the sales inside the Beltway suck as well. Man, this is one dead story.
