One for the Xmas stocking
The Times reports: A BOOK that rejects religion and argues for the non- existence of God is heading to be the No 1 bestseller for Christmas.
Richard Dawkins’s The God Delusion is at the top of the bestseller chart of the online bookseller Amazon, and is climbing up The Times bestseller chart.
With Professor Dawkins about to travel to the US to publicise the book, sources in online sales say that his atheistic rant against all things religious is already trumping celebrity biographies....
Kes Nielsen, Amazon’s head books buyer, said it was rare for a serious scientific or philosophical book to top the UK charts. “It seems as though many people are bored with the superficial world of stardom that’s fascinated us for so long.”
See - people don't just want pap all the time - the book is on the shelf here in line to be read (I have all of his books in first editions, so count me in as a fan).
