It's A Best Seller?

Yesterday I took time to read the listing of best selling books in the Wall Street Journal.  It's always interesting to see what's popular in the world of books.  So, I go down the list of the best selling hardcover fiction.  There in position number 9 on this list was Green Eggs and Ham.  Honest.  The number 9 best selling hard cover fiction book in America. 

I'm thinking, you gotta be kidding.  That's my all time favorite book.  And there it is number 9 on this week's best selling book list.  I must really have good taste when it comes to books.

That either says a lot about Bob's literary savy or it doesn't say a lot about what American's read these days. 

After this earth shaking discover I continue down the best seller list.  Guess what?  You're not going to believe this but The Cat in the Hat is number 14 on the best sellers hard cover fiction list.  Believe it. 

Holy Macaroni and Cheese!  I'm thinking that two children's books that have been on the shelves forever and still on the best sellers list has to truly mark the end of our civilization.   Or, could it be that there's a boom in babies being born and all the grandparents are rushing out to buy their little darlings an old familiar friend. 

Either way, Dr Seuss has to be looking down on us from somewhere within the pearly gates and smiling.  Writing two or more classic children's books that still sit on the best sellers list is indeed something to be proud of.
