    Oh My Dog (which Beth didn't even write) was a bestseller in some ridiculously obscure category like "Pet Care Books Released This Week" because it was the ONLY pet care book released that week. Of course, with Howard's spin that translated into "NY Times Bestselling Author".

    The rule of thumb a while back was you move 10,000 units in a week to crack the NYT top ten list. Not a very high barrier with any promotion, plus there's always the dummy buyers hired by people like Buchwald.

    I'm sure Howard bought a ton of books. He probably gave them out for Christmas along with the lovely Beth "oh and look, is there an animal with her" calendar.
