not true. At this point you're simply trying to rationalize your original post and you really can't.

"in the U.K.". Also, the Kindle has only been around for like 5 years and been widespread in the market for even less time than that. {nm}   BionicMoron on Jun 27, 12:24

So in short you are discounting the fact that it's the best selling book in the last 5 years for no rational reason. {nm}   mrbeankc on Jun 27, 17:29

So your basic arguement is that e-books don't count in terms of sales. Ok. {nm}   mrbeankc on Jun 27, 21:32

Are you sure you know how to read? I haven't said anything remotely like that. {nm}   BionicMoron on Jun 28, 04:51

Not surprised. They need to get this movie into production yesterday. {nm}   MiyazakiFan on Jun 27, 14:50
