New York Times Or Bust

For many authors, writing a book that sells enough copies to earn a place on the New York Times Best Sellers List is often considered the highest honor the media can bestow upon a wildly grateful writer.   Count me in.That said, I’ve never actually consulted the New York Times Best Sellers List prior to making a book purchase.

While the act of physically traveling to another country is a luxury not all of our citizens are able to experience, I do feel that, in some small way, Twitter and other social media offers a practice voyage – a travel, of sorts – to faraway lands and unfamiliar cultures. Perhaps, the impact of social media is along the lines…
