Betting On Books?

Simon and Schuster is betting the public's opinion will help them find profitable projects. Read the NYT article here.

What do you think about this? Sounds interesting to me, but I'm not sure if it's got any real merit in relation to what makes a book "breakout" or die on the shelf. I've starting playing and have so far made about $1900. If only that were real money!

And yes, it's still my birthday. All day.


  1. Gosh, there are so many factors that can affect a book's sales. It's like being at right place at the right time.

  2. Happy Birthday,Kristen!

  3. happy birthday...a day late!
    sorry i don't have any new jewelry to send you, maybe next year!

    hope you had a great day!

  4. Happy (late) birthday!
