We’re No. 1! – BOTH of us

So, my wife and I made history (probably) today. We both sit atop our respective categories on our local bookstore’s bestseller list. Not sure if any husband/wife team has ever done that. But if they did, then we tied them.

So below is the proof (scroll down to the red text). If you want to find out the book I’m reading right now, scroll down to the purple text, which is No. 4 in the Adult Non-fiction list.

And by the way, go visit Viewpoint Books in Columbus, Indiana, and/or click on the link in the headline below to find out more about it. Or just go to any bookstore and buy a book and read it. It’ll be good for you and everyone else.
