"In the book industry, the ‘New York Times Best Seller List’ is intended only for books that critics like. So if a book outsells the ‘important’ books, such as an exercise book in the 1980s, a new list is created just to get that exercise book off of the New York Times Best Seller List. When ‘Harry Potter’ came out, it outsold the critically acclaimed books. So a new list was invented, the Children’s Best Seller List, and ‘Harry Potter’ books got moved off the New York Times Best Seller List. The book industry has collapsed long ago and is an example of an entertainment industry being held captive by the ‘book culture’. Keep that in mind next time you go to a book store, for they won’t be around much longer, and see people sitting there sipping coffee."
