Here’s a nice story via Reuters about a New York Times bestseller about a family and their dog. It’s doing fabulously as far as landmarks in the publishing industry.

Bob Wietrak, vice president of merchandising for the Barnes & Noble chain of bookstores, said the book’s success was due to its focus on broader human themes. “It’s about the human condition, it’s about relationships, it’s about family.” (Italics mine)
