The Guide to Gourmet Shaving stands at #350

leave a comment »

I wanted to record how Leisureguy’s Guide to Gourmet Shaving is doing. It begins the year (after the December Amazon.com and Amazon.uk sales are accounted for) standing at number 350 in Lulu.com sales: securely within the top 400. Where will it stand come January 2010? Want to guess?

On the one hand (ho men), the book’s been out there for a while (the Second Edition since this summer), so sales would be expected to trail off. On the other hand (ho day), the book sells mainly by word of mouth (my advertising budget is nil), so as more are sold, the word of mouth can be expected to spread. Also, the economy might drive some men away from the disposable multi-blade cartridges, which run up to $3.50 each, and make a 9¢ razor blade more attractive.

And, of course, all those other Lulu.com books are also selling and improving their own standing.

My guess: Lulu.com rank of 250.
