Several months back, we set a quiz: you had to predict where in the sales chart two books (those on Neutral Milk Hotel and the Band) would be, by the end of March. The more alert of you will have noticed that it is now April. The results:
Kim Cooper’s NMH book is currently sitting at no.11 on the chart.
John Niven’s Big Pink book is currently at no.23 – rising fast, but not fast enough for some.
Using the highly scientific method of awarding a point for every position the guesses were out by, on both books, the person with the lowest score is the winner. And the winner, by one point (having predicted no.16 for NMH and no.21 for the Band) is our very own J.Niimi, author of the Murmur book. (And honestly, this was not an inside job: J. had no extra data to work with!)
Honourable mentions go to Taylor and Ted, who both came close. Everybody else (including myself) was waaaaaay off.
J., your prize will be on its way to you this week:
