Chuffed with my Amazon ranking

I’ve just discovered how to find my Amazon ranking. This is interesting, not only as someone who has written a book and wants to see how it’s doing in the big wide world, but also as a buyer of books. If you scroll down to product details, you’ll find it tucked away at the bottom. Dance with Fireflies (Kindle) is ranked 38,544. One of my favourite books of all time: City of Djinns by William Dalrymple is ranked 32,097 so I’m pretty chuffed with that!

Bizarrely, the number one book in the Kindle store is Grey and hasn’t actually been released yet!

This is what the ranking equates to in terms of book sales:

Amazon Best Seller Rank 50,000 to 100,000 – selling close to 1 book a day.

Amazon Best Seller Rank 10,000 to 50,000 – selling 5 to 15 books a day.
