Nosemonkey's EUtopia

In search of a European identity

Ego-trip

As well as discovering that I am top Google result for “EU debate”, this week’s Private Eye has a piece on the sales figures of books shortlisted for this year’s Man Booker Prize. The winner, Anne Enright’s The Gathering, has apparently sold a good few hundred fewer copies (just 3,687) than the first of my own humble efforts (a guide to the films of Tim Burton, sales to date of what I thought was a fairly pathetic 4,500 or so).

  1. I got a similar confidence boost the other day. A big issue here right now is something called ”le projet de loi sur l’identité québécoise” and when you search it i’m first. Which do you like better, being a published author or high-profile blogger, or is that a boring question?

  2. I wouldn’t say that I’m a high-profile blogger, but blogging has nonetheless got me significantly more money than has being a published author. (At least, in terms of jobs I can attribute directly to one or the other…)
